Through experience and analysis we identified in Tanzania
- A rapid 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.
- 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 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 condition!
By introducing a more sustainable and affordable building method, we strongly believe our projects have the ability to trigger social and economical change in a poverty stricken region. In this way, C-re-aid reaches their goals and by doing so also contributes on achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
