from the Chairman
and the President

The Alliance Mandate
“Historically, Habitat has been a very “entrepreneurial” organization, using rapid worldwide growth
of its programs and volunteer base to serve as many communities as possible. Now that it has a
broad global presence, Habitat can focus on significantly increasing the housing impact it makes
in each of those communities. Leaders from throughout the Habitat movement realize that the
scope of the affordable housing problem – and poverty itself – is so vast that Habitat can’t
possibly make the necessary impact on its own.

As a result, partnerships and alliances have risen to prominence in Habitat’s current strategic
plan. This is possible because Habitat no longer thinks of itself as the controlling hub of a wheel,
but rather as one of the wheel’s spokes (or “nodes”). Each node represents an organization
contributing uniquely but cooperatively to a central focus on poverty. Habitat’s crucial role is that
of housing “catalyst”, sparking awareness about housing and encouraging coordinated, effective
action.” (from Habitat for Humanity and Strategic Partnerships, The Forum, 2008: Volume 15
Number 2)

The Strategic Restructuring Continues
Even as the affiliates are still in the process of full compliance with the HFHI standards of
excellence, the Philippine program was still able to serve over 4,000 families with decent housing.
 The continuing challenge is for the affiliates to embrace the concept of building the Habitat way
through the affiliate-driven regional Habitat Building and Resource Centers.

Elsewhere, particularly in most Habitat Asia Pacific countries, HFHI has veered away from the
independent affiliate model. HFH Asia Pacific has likewise adopted its version of the Habitat
Resource Center, a unit directly under HFHAP or the national organization, which handles the
building of houses.

After a review of the long-term sustainability of affiliates, a process where HFHP worked together
with HFHAP under the country support plan, the number of independent local affiliates was
reduced to sixteen (16). Some affiliates elected to combine, while others which could not be
geographically consolidated went into the process of converting into local management councils
(LMCs). The LMC’s are directly under the administration of HFHP with the principal role of local
networking while the build is done by the regional HBRC team.

In line with the alliance mandate, the Philippine program is pursuing more partnerships with other
organizations, particularly micro-finance institutions and cooperatives, with a similar mission of
building communities with Christian values. These organizations are a natural fit for Habitat as
they have communities to serve; are capable of providing the soft programs to fully empower
communities; can provide funding for their members’ housing needs; has collection as a core
competency; and can serve as mortgage bookrunner.

We also continue to pursue non-traditional ways of funding. Partnerships have been forged with
the Social Housing Finance Corporation and the Home Development Mutual Fund, which will
allow a broader reach to other equally-needy beneficiaries, beyond the informal sector.

These types of alliances will allow the Philippine program to sustain in a significant way its role
as housing “catalyst” towards building communities.

Building Programs Redefined
With the housing gap widening to close to 4 million, much of which is in the poverty housing
sector and attributed to the continuing urban migration, there was a need to redefine the building
programs to more effectively serve the different sectors among the poor. Thus, the building
programs are now defined as:

• Urban Renewal Program. “Habitat takes urban housing to the next level”, where with the
use of appropriate technology, efficient and affodable medium rise condominium type structures
could be built where land is scarce and expensive.

• Disaster Risk Mitigation Program. “Rebuilding lives.” This program has transformed from
disaster relief to risk mitigation as we help relocate informal settlers in endangered zones. Our
strategy of not being a day 1 player but building alliances with disaster relief organizations has
worked well. In the Southern Leyte landslide of February 2006, we have since built over 900
houses. In the Bicol Region over the last 18 months, we have since repaired over 2,000 houses
and built close to 1,000 typhoon resistant, loftable dwellings with the use of combined steel
frame and light concrete in-fill, and a newly developed modified concrete hollow blocks

• Peace Build Program. “Building for peace and development.” Our experience in the
ongoing peace build under the sponsorship of the European Union and the vast array of
alliances with other soft program providers has allowed us to expand our reach beyond housing.
 An ongoing project is the building and rebuilding of 600 school classrooms in Mindanao, a
number of which is located in conflict areas, in partnership with the Petron Foundation and with
funding from the USAID. We see this program to continue to serve conflict victims, internally
displaced people, and even former combatants.

• Regular Program. “No more slums” will continue to be pursued in close partnerships with
local government units.

Friends of Habitat
The “Friends of Habitat”, the formation of which was announced during last year’s AGMM, was
elevated to a formal program of HFHP. Since then, regional launches were done in Palawan,
Butuan, General Santos, Davao, Bicol and in the NCR.

Its principal mssion is to create a circle of friends at the local level that can do the networking
within the major sectors of our stakeholders.

International Recognitions and Participations of HFHP
The Philippine program continued to host various teams from HFHI and other HFHI countries
where we were able to share our best practices as well as lessons learned, particularly our urban
renewal and disaster response programs and our ability to forge good partnerships at the
national and local government levels and other oovernment housing agencies.

In recognition of these innovative ways, HFHP was invited to participate and share its best
practices in various HFHI international fora.

Once again, a Philippine nominee for the HFHI Nehemiah Award, Ms. Alexandra Madrigal
Eduque, was accorded this most prestigious award for volunteerism for FY2008. Ms. Alex, as
she is fondly called by the children of homepartners in Baseco, a community where Habitat has
built 1,000 houses, started to volunteer 2 years ago. Recently, she celebrated her 18th birthday
with close friends and family members, raising an amount that funded 30 disaster resistant
houses as part of our program of “rebuilding Bicol”. She not only elevated the standards of
Habitat volunteerism to a much higher level, but also served as an inspiration to the youth

Building on Faith
True to our mission of demonstrating the love and teachings of Jesus by helping the poor, the
Building on Faith Committee of the national board is actively pursuing more partnerships with
different Christian churches. Monthly meetings are held with partner churches to discuss areas
of cooperation and complementation with the common goal of building communities based on
Christian values.

As we end FY2008, we are optimistic that the ongoing structural interventions will enable the
Philippine program to attain its goal of helping 10,000 families with decent housing each year by

It is on this note that we end the fiscal year, thanking all our stakeholders and most especially our
Lord Jesus Christ, for

                              “Unless the Lord builds the house,
                                   Its builders labor in vain.
                             Unless the Lord watches over the city,
                               The guards stand watch in vain.”
                                         - Psalm 127:1

Changing the City's Landscape thru Urban Renewal
- Urban migration has pushed the poverty housing problem to a more acute level
- HFHP's program has caught the attention of HFHI for the innovative use of technology and the
partnership with communities, LGU's and funding agencies

                   Rebuilding Lives thru Disaster Risk Mitigation

                    - Alliances with Day 1 disaster relief players
                    - Use of innovative and volunteer-friendly technology
                    allows a fast and efficient build
                    - The disaster risk mitigation program will require
                    HFHI-initiated international funding that can be
                    accessed even before a disaster occurs

Serving Families in Conflict Areas
- More than housing, alliances with soft program partners is more important
- More than housing, access to education and community facilities will lead to long-lasting peace
and development

Mission Vision
"A world where everyone has a decent place to live."

Mission Statement
Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with God and people everywhere, from
all walks of life, to develop communities with people in need by building and
renovating houses so that there are decent houses in decent communities in which
every person can experience God's love, and can live and grow into all that God

Mission Methods
Habitat for Humanity mobilizes local leadership and resources to expand access for
all people to decent, affordable shelter. Typically, volunteers and home partners
work together through Habitat for Humanity affiliates to build or renovate houses.
 In this process, Habitat forgoes making a profit on loans through interest, putting
value instead on meeting human need. Long-term housing security for a family –
typically homeownership – is the expected result. Payments made by the new
home partner go into a local Fund for Humanity to build or renovate more houses,
giving home partners the opportunity to give as well as to receive. Habitat home
partners are selected on the basis of need and willingness to partner, regardless of
race, religion, gender or ethnic background.

Mission Principles
• Demonstrate the love and teachings of Jesus Christ.
• Advocate on behalf of those in need of decent shelter.
• Focus on shelter by building and renovating simple, decent, affordable houses.
• Engage broad community through inclusive leadership and diverse partnerships.
• Promote dignity through full partnership with Habitat homeowners and future
    home partners.
• Promote transformational and sustainable community development.
