  • Mission statement

    Vision: We envision a world in which everyone has access to land, shelter and basic services.

    Shelter is more than just a house; it is a space for privacy, economic activity, social care and personal fulfilment.

    Mission: Our mission is to develop a global network of Development Enterprises that are capable of creating housing solutions for people at the bottom of the income pyramid.

    We are the only UK organisation dedicated to the challenge of living conditions in urban slums. The programmes we implement with our partners in Africa and Asia focus on addressing inadequate shelter, insecure tenure and lack of access to services such as clean water. We provide organisational development support, project technical assistance and finance, to support our partners to deliver at increasing scale and through more effective cost-recovery models. Our partners work closely with community-based networks whose members live in slums, thus ensuring that the people who benefit from our work are centrally involved in its design and implementation.
