Our financials

We believe our partner families, volunteers, and donors all deserve the best in ethics and business practices.


What we do

We are living through a global housing crisis with 1.6 billion people living without adequate shelter. Access to safe and decent homes builds a solid foundation from which families thrive, housing improves health and wellbeing, boosts educational and employability prospects, and strengthens the resilience of communities. By mixing:


Practical construction led programmes such as the construction of new homes, or upgrading of slum housing.


The testing and bringing to market of innovations in construction and finance, such as bamboo construction, or housing microfinance.


Advocacy and lobbying efforts calling on governments around the world to make housing a priority such as securing land rights for female headed households.

We deliver vital housing and the chance of a decent home to millions of vulnerable families.
