Wars and Conflict cause nearly 90,000 deaths worldwide every year. 97% of these deaths occur in Africa largely due to the collapse of buildings
Poverty rates in Uganda are nearing 50 percent. The country faces a housing shortage of more than six million homes, and forecasts predict that low-income populations in major urban centers are expected to double in the next 15 years.
Half of the urban population lives in unplanned squatter settlements that lack electricity, clean water and sanitation. Despite the deplorable conditions, residents are required to pay considerable rents. Without legal title to the land they live on, they can be evicted at any time and hold no economic collateral with which to gain access to formal credit markets.
With an ardent eye on Housing, Smart Havens Africa, is keen to end Housing poverty in Africa by providing Sustainable, Eco-Friendly, and Affordable Housing to low and moderate income people in Africa who are unable to secure long term affordable housing or are disadvantaged by the private rental market
