86.5 Million People
are forcibly displaced right now across the globe. They are faced with realities that deny them a dignified life and fulfillment of their capabilities. We wish to change all of that with Nostos, the first-of-its kind sustainable emergency shelter for people displaced in violence or a natural disaster.
Nostos engages the local community in its design, delivery and deployment. This collaborative approach enables better understanding of community needs and aspirations.
Nostos revolves around the idea of delivering the “whole package” - including living spaces and solar panels- all flat-packed into a small module which can be assembled like Lego
Each unit houses a single family and aims to restore privacy, personal dignity and safety in times of crises. It provides increased sanitation and security and increases social cohesion.
Nostos Homes is a non-profit organisation founded in early 2020. It is the first-of-its-kind sustainable emergency shelter for people fleeing from violence or displaced due to natural disasters. Our innovative, modular and light-weight homes are designed to house people immediately after a disaster or in the intermediate term. It restores privacy, personal dignity and safety.
Each dollar invested in Nostos Homes provides $15 of on-ground impact.
