Grand Hyatt Jakarta and Habitat for Humanity Indonesia
Habitat for Humanity Indonesia (HFHI) recognizes the importance of a decent house. A safe and healthy home acts as a foundation for breaking the poverty cycle. A home opens the doors to improved health, better performance in school and greater economic opportunities, thus positively impacting one’s health, education, wellbeing and future prospects for generations to come.
As of 2017, HFHI has served more than 50,000 families throughout 13 provinces in the past twenty years. The core program of HFHI is decent housing. However, we strongly support the program of the government to achieve 100 – 0 – 100 or 100% access to clean water; 0% slum area; 100% access to toilets. As the country’s shelter crisis involves a range of development issues, HFHI’s programs also cover disaster response, water and sanitation, health and education and environmental sustainable housing solutions.
Habitat for Humanity Indonesia, invites everyone - corporations, schools, faith groups of every religious denomination, and individuals to address the challenges faced by the marginalized communities. In addition to providing hope and self-esteem for new homeowners, HFHI encourages people to put aside their differences and pick up hammers to bring healing and hope to communities.
Grand Hyatt Jakarta has been supporting Habitat for Humanity for more than 15 years and together have built more than 40 houses for the unfortunate people.
The Hyatt Community Grant will be used to build five homes in Sentul, West Java for low-income families living in rural Sentul.
