We are a one-of-a-kind non-profit innovation studio that uses design as our primary tool to solve one of the most pressing global problems: homelessness. We design and provide shelter and infrastructure solutions for the homeless and vulnerable that are scalable and sustainable. Our solutions create opportunities for homeless families to emerge out of poverty. Our approach empowers local communities to replicate our solutions on their own and reduce dependencies on support, creating ownership and pride, and unlocking untapped potential for change.
We operate two design studios, in Singapore and Mumbai, and create high quality women focussed design solutions to help the poorest of communities get access to homes. Our team works closely with homeless researching, documenting and providing assistance. Learn more...
Identify markets: Our strategic team identifies emergency needs of the homeless and market gaps, and builds partnerships that are aligned to our vision into the future.
Innovate & pilot: Our design and technology innovators approach a problem head on, and lead an integrated team to develop and pilot robust solutions to help the homeless.
Productise & scale: Successful proof of concepts are then driven into the market for scale and expansion with a clear exit driven strategy.
