Home is where the heart is

Everybody has dreams and they vary from person to person. However, one dream remains common to all- owning a decent, beautiful secure home. After all, who doesn’t want to live in a home with clean running water and sanitation services that sits in a nice neighborhood and has great facilities? However, many people have yet to take advantage of this profound desire

Landlords are forcing you into a rental poverty trap when you keep paying rent without any homeownership plan! This is especially frustrating when you are working hard to steer yourself away from poverty, hunger, and inadequate shelter towards financial freedom.

The thought of owning a home can be daunting, especially when you don’t have the financial strength to fulfill your dream.

At Smart Havens Africa (SHA) we want to see you thrive, we have therefore made Homeownership affordable for you than ever before so you can become financially independent and live a dignified life. Welcome to our official website.

Who we are

We are a business that uplifts

As a social enterprise, Smart Havens Africa is committed to providing homeownership to women and low-income families in Uganda. Why? Because we have ourselves experienced this problem first hand and we understand what powerful impact an adequate shelter has on a family and how greatly it can improve their quality of life.

Thus, since our inception, we have been clear on our Mission to provide an affordable pathway to Homeownership for low-income families and a better future for women in Africa.

What we do, and

What makes us

Smart Havens Africa is a social enterprise constituting a humane business that uplifts. We build communities, not single homes, and ensure families have full legal ownership of the land where their home is built, so they can never be forced to leave. Each community has access to the resources they need to thrive, including water, power, and proximity to career and educational opportunities.

At SHA, we believe that a safe home is a foundation needed for economic uplift. It deters the evil of rental trap poverty and enables households to save more for themselves, which, in turn, instills an enhanced personal image and growth.

We center attention on providing people like you with the right quality and value at a reasonable amount thus improving your quality of life.
