A humane business
We are a social enterprise founded to uplift and transform lives. We build communities, not single homes, and ensure families have full legal ownership of the land where their affordable home is built, so they can never be evicted. 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 an affordable home is a foundation needed to uplift families. It deters families from the rental trap and enables households to save more for themselves, which, in turn, instills an enhanced personal image and growth.
What motivates us?
We are a social enterprise founded to uplift and transform lives. Why? Because we have ourselves, experienced how the lack of Quality affordable Housing affects all areas of life.
“While I was denied becoming a civil engineer, a dream that I had hoped to achieve because my mother spent most of her income on rent after my dad passed on , My Cofounder, Will too struggled a lot, often being on the streets to get food for his family and money to pay his school fees as well as rent“, Says Anne, the Managing Director of Smart Havens Africa.
“So, we have both first handedly experienced the housing problem.”, and we understand what powerful impact an adequate shelter has on a family and how greatly it can improve the quality of life.

We’re always on the lookout for talent that believes in our ethos & want to join our mission.
