E-mail: info@habitat.org.zaStatement of PurposeHabitat empowers communities to co-create their own thriving and sustainable future through education, impactful partnerships, skills transfer and citizen-driven education. Habitat believes that community-led approaches are the only way to successfully bring about permanent, sustainable development. Public-private partnerships are a useful change mechanism, but for real impact to take place it is crucial that we place the People at the front and centre in the relationship too. Habitat’s People-Public-Private Partnerships model enables and empowers communities to successfully free themselves from the shackles of poverty. Through these partnerships, we access the skills and resources necessary to empower communities to free themselves from the shackles of poverty, replacing injustice and despair with dignity and hope.Legal Notice
