Tithe and Global Efforts – Beaches Habitat for Humanity
Nearly 2 billion people around the world live in slum housing and over 100 million are homeless. Habitat for Humanity is needed to help eliminate poverty by providing simple, decent shelter to those in need.
Beaches Habitat for Humanity is one of more than 1,700 US and 550 international affiliates of Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) that combined have built or repaired more than 1 million homes throughout the world. Each affiliate tithes a certain percentage of their unspecified donations to a sister affiliate elsewhere in the world.
Since 1995, we have served more than 120 families in Costa Rica by contributing $424,813 through the tithe program.
In 2013, at the request of HFHI, we diverted our tithing efforts to support countries with “emerging programs” and countries listed as “highest priority.” Based on their recommendations we chose three affiliates to support: Habitat for Humanity Lesotho, Habitat for Humanity Nepal, and Habitat for Humanity Haiti
