First description of our project
First description of our project's idea
Refugees: solving the sheltering problem
1. What Problem do you want to solve ?
We want to solve the refugee sheltering problem.
2. Why does this problem exist?
This problem has arisen due to the war conditions (precisely in Syria as a result of the severe political regime) which has caused an influx of refugees. This reality has been brought to light more than before since a lot of people are left homeless.
3. What breakthrough are you commited to creating?
We aim to provide a solution for this problem by using sustainable resources to compose housing and hopefully achieve economies of scale through our model.
