By introducing a more sustainable and affordable building method, we strongly believe our projects have the ability to trigger a social and economical change in a poverty-stricken region. In this way, C-re-aid reaches their goals and by doing so also contributes to achieving the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Through experience and analysis, we identified in Tanzania. A rapidly changing building culture, due to modern influences, climate change, and environmental policies. These factors lead to poor building qualities and living situations. Poor living situations are contributing to the vulnerability to fall into poverty. The use of unecological materials will have disastrous consequences for the environment as people will always need more housing and infrastructure.
Through architectural projects, we aspire to a place where people are creatively inspired within a hand reach to participate in an affordable, ecological, and sustainable building culture. Architecture is much more than a tool to merely enhance material conditions.
