17% of the world's population are living on less than $1.25 a day. This equates to 1.2 billion people living in extreme poverty, today.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that "everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and his family" - we're working towards this goal.

From housing to sanitation and infrastructure, our projects address the real needs of the communities we work with. We believe good design improves lives, and should be accessible to all.

Under the spotlight

We're working with the people of Jogen Babu Maath slum in northern Bangladesh to incrementally improve living conditions.

Over the next 6 months we'll be supporting a group of 50 households to create their vision for the future. As a first step we'll be co-designing an urban drainage system to ensure the health and well-being of the community.
