Challenge

Hundreds of thousands of Afghans still live under tents. Thousands of school kids have no structures or poor structures for classrooms. Afghans have limited, and in some cases, no access to clinics due to the lack of structures.

Solution

Sarpanah, a Dari word for shelter, will respond to all these needs. Sarpanah is an alternative to existing tents, mud-houses and pre-fab containers. Sarpanah shelters take 6 hands and 1 hour to build, and can be taken apart and built countless times.

Long-Term Impact

Access to affordable, durable shelters means schools for Afghan children, homes for Afghan families, and clinics for Afghan sick and wounded. Building shelters means building chances.
