Habitat for Humanity Sri Lanka began operating in Sri Lanka in 1994 through affiliates. The model later evolved into a series of Habitat Resource Centers that support satellite centers and individual projects in four regions. Today, HFH Sri Lanka is probably the country’s largest home builder after the government.

Habitat for Humanity - Sri Lanka Nov 09 stats

Habitat for Humanity Sri Lanka had distributed 1300 solar cookers by February 2013

The former affiliate, now satellite center, in Anuradhapura pioneered Habitat’s housing microfinance scheme, Save & Build, in 2000. This sees groups of about 12 families saving toward the cost of one house. When that amount is reached, Habitat matches their efforts with a loan to build two more houses, thus allowing three houses to be built. The cycle repeats until each group member has a house. Loan repayments are recycled into a fund to help other savings groups.

In line with the seventh Millennium Development Goal on ensuring environmental sustainability, the Habitat Resource Center in eastern Batticaloa is building houses with environmentally-friendly and energy-saving features. Concepts of home gardens, solar cookers, garbage compost bins and wind pump systems are also introduced to home partners.
