Imagine trying to bathe and get dressed for work or school without a decent bathroom. Would you be able to get a good night’s sleep without a safe place to lie down?

With the help of Habitat for Humanity Zambia, Yoanna has written a will to secure her family’s future. “I feel good knowing that my house will go to my family, that they will have a place to live if I die,” says Yoanna, who cares for 10 children and grandchildren.

Without a will, families like Yoanna’s can fall victim to land grabbing, a common practice where distant relatives try to claim property following a death. To make matters worse, many families in Zambia do not have documents proving that they own their property, making them vulnerable to unlawful evictions.
