Mahila SEWA Housing Trust (MHT)

Mahila Housing Sewa Trust (MHT)’s mission is to organize and empower women in poor communities to improve their habitat.

MTH defines a quality habitat is a home with all basic services such as clean water, toilets, electricity, and adequate light and ventilation. It is a key financial asset that supports livelihoods and makes the poor more resilient to heat stress, disease, and other hazards of climate change. Women understand that a strong neighbourhood is essential to upgrading individual homes. They know how to work together to bring much-needed services in their under-served communities. Through its grassroots programs in habitat development, climate change resilience, and participatory governance, MHT empowers women to exercise their rights and uplift living conditions for their families and neighbours.

MHT believes women are the leaders to drive progress in their under-served communities. Through grassroots programs in habitat development, climate change, and participatory governance, MHT empowers women to exercise their rights and uplift living conditions for their families and neighbours.
