The HOME Project, in its essence, aims to provide viable affordable options the housing / shelter / built environment to
vulnerable urban poor communities. The design aims to deliver a significant improvement in the living conditions of people by providing ample amount of natural light and ventilation, improved indoor air quality, security and protection from pest and rodents, thereby increasing the livelihood productivity and providing a healthy environment safe for inhabitation.
