Hábitat para la Humanidad Argentina (HPHA) continues to work intensively by implementing new projects in the province of Santa Fe. Currently HPHA is implementing a joint project with the Asociación Cultural para el Desarrollo Integral (ACDI -Cultural Association for Comprehensive Development- www.acdi.org.ar), a social cooperation institution which promotes social and economic development in rural and urban areas.
The aim of this collaborative effort between HPHA and ACDI is to generate sustainable cultural change that will lead to social development and will allow families to access adequate housing. To meet this goal, both organizations are carrying out a survey to determine the context and existing housing situation in the neighbourhoods of Villa del Parque, Barranquitas Oeste y Villa Oculta, in the City of Santa Fe. The second step will include the implementation by HPHA of the project “Developing Neighbourhoods”, which is characterized by combining several methodologies for the production of housing solutions, including “Habitat Tent”, “Seed House” and “Incremental Improvements.”
This partnership represents a way of improving and furthering the outreach of the work that HPHA carries out in Santa Fe. It will offer more families currently living in inadequate conditions the opportunity to access a solution to their housing problem.
