India – Building new homes for families

Habitat for Humanity is an international development charity that aims to break the cycle of poverty by eliminating housing poverty and homelessness. Across communities in over 70 countries, Habitat for Humanity has assisted more than 6.8 million people renovate, repair or build over a million homes since 1976.

Prudential’s association with Habitat for Humanity India started in 2012 with a tree plantation drive. House-building activity was introduced in 2013, as a number of families cannot afford this basic necessity in life.

In 2015 floods in Chennai and neighbouring districts in Tamil Nadu destroyed properties, livelihood and the basic living conditions of thousands.  Prudential volunteers supported the restoration of the homes of the people impacted in the region.
