Samoa Habitat for Humanity NZ Housing 2015


Habitat for Humanity NZ (HFHNZ) Housing built in Upolu, Samoa (end of 2015)

The three-year (2016-2019) $1.49 million Habitat Build Project of Habitat for Humanity New Zealand is being delivered in Samoa by the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) with a key partner being the Samoa Housing Corporation (SHC). It is funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the Partnerships for International Development fund.

The project would begin with financial literacy training, an important component of Habitat programmes worldwide. Families involved in the project would also gain basic housing improvements skills including more specific cyclone-strapping training resulting in extensive maintenance or new homes for those families.
