INDUSTRIES / AID & RELIEF

More than a roof

Designing for humanitarian settings - Humanitarian engineering is a niche field of expertise where engineering skills are applied for humanitarian aid purposes. It is defined as ‘design under constraints to directly improve the wellbeing of underserved populations, where constraints are not just physical and economic, but also environmental, cultural, and ethical.’
In simpler terms, the shelter solutions or relief essentials need to be fit-for-purpose. They must be durable and perform under extremely harsh

weather conditions. At the same time, all the products are designed with the people and their cultural needs in mind. This beneficiary perspective fits within the framework of a rights-based approach. The items are not simple consumables but contribute to protecting the universal rights to shelter, education, sanitation, and healthcare. Our solutions often provide security and human dignity to displaced populations, enabling family life to continue until a permanent solution is found
