The number of orphans and vulnerable children in Malawi has increased from 937,000 in 2001 to 1,400,000 in 2010, representing an increase of 66 percent in less than a decade. Malawi has a high rural to urban migration – 5.3% per annum, according to UN Habitat.Escaping homelessness in Malawi
Approximately 21,000 new units are needed every year for the next 10 years to meet housing demand – this far exceeds supply.
In the urban areas, many people live in slums characterised by poor water and sanitation facilities, no electricity and poor road networks. There are very few institutions dedicated to eliminating poverty housing in Malawi.
We provide new homes that are fully subsidised for orphans and other vulnerable groups of people. The houses are two, three or four roomed according to the family size. We also provide Housing Support Services (HSS) to low-income people in partnership with housing microfinance institutions.
