More about the project
According to studies by the World Economic Forum, inequality is growing in most parts of the world and families can fall into poverty very easily: a job loss, financial hardship, a death in the family, an increase in cost of living, can create unforeseen challenges. Sometimes, having a house doesn’t mean a person is not living in poor conditions: housing poverty can include lack of reliable or affordable energy, lack of heating/cooling and proper insulation or access to clean water and sanitation facilities.
