Sustainable shelters worldwide

We offer cost-effective high-quality shelter solutions for multiple purposes worldwide.

Together with our internationally renowned partners we work tirelessly to provide durable and healthy housing for the world's poorest and most vulnerable populations.

All our solutions are produced locally, strengthening the local communities.


Local production


We strive to promote sustainable economic growth, productive employment and decent work in the countries we are working in.

Refugee host countries often face severe economic challenges, and we recognize that the above-mentioned factors are crucial to create conditions that allow the local communities to become more resilient and independent of aid, and eventually lift them out of poverty.

Instead of making explicit donations, our business model is designed as an income-generating project that ensures a more viable and sustainable social impact.
