Making a Difference for the Working Poor in Panama

In 2015, in partnership with the United Nations and in alliance with the Grupo Shahani, GHF completed homes for the working poor. This pilot project tested and successfully addressed three of the UN Habitat Directives (Initiatives):

  • Creation of a public/private partnership in building homes
  • Empowering women
  • Creating workforce housing

One other unique element was that all families who received workforce housing had a family member with a disability.
