Losing a home in the event of a disaster leaves families shattered. We respond to disasters and humanitarian emergencies by leveraging our expertise in affordable shelter, sanitation and housing assistance.
Safe, decent shelter provides the platform upon which much of post-disaster assistance is built: health, water, sanitation, livelihoods, safety, education, financial inclusion etc. To support these crucial processes, the Pathways to Permanence strategy places affected families on a path to permanent shelter solutions.
When disaster strikes, our rapid response team does an immediate analysis of the housing needs and provides a humanitarian aid kit to the affected families. The kit helps with basic food needs, water and protection from the ongoing disaster.
Once people begin recovering from the initial loss, we construct transitional shelters using locally available materials, tools and technologies to help families build temporary homes. It provides a safe, secure and healthy living environment.
We work with the government and our corporate partners to build new permanent disaster-resilient homes for affected families. It provides them with a strong foundation to rebuild their lives.
We make systemic efforts to reduce vulnerability in families and their properties in disaster-prone areas. This is supported through our committed, long-term partners.
We build safe and disaster-resistant homes or retrofit improvements on existing houses. This increases the resistance to damage.
Communities are the first to respond when disaster strikes. We conduct training programs to improve their preparedness. This helps them respond effectively and mitigates the impact considerably.

We are advocating for the widespread implementation of cost effective designs, technologies and construction materials to be more actively used in disaster prone areas.
We are working with the government, and both public and private insurance companies to provide new insurance packages to families in risk prone areas.
We are continuously investing in improving our own knowledge and skills and that of our implementation partners.
