C-re-aid, established in 2012, is an architectural NGO dedicated to exploring the possibilities of responsible building practices and materials; to promote long-term socio-economic and environmental improvement across East Africa.
Through our research and projects, C-re-aid hopes to ensure that individuals have access to sustainable, ecological, and affordable building methods. We strongly believe that architecture has the potential to reach far beyond purely aesthetic enhancements.
C-re-aid sees responsible construction practices as a means of laying the literal foundations for long-term socio-economic benefits.
C-re-aid tasks itself with exploring the possibilities of responsible architecture. We hope to make sustainable and ecological building methods and materials accessible to all; in turn, triggering socio-economic improvements within communities experiencing hardship.
We achieve the objectives of this mission through close collaboration with village leaders, our partner communities, and NGOs; as well as our international network of beneficiaries and universities.
Our multinational team is fully committed to the consistent development of the organization; in order to achieve our vision. Our team is reinforced by short term student researchers and interns who contribute their efforts and time to the organization while they are with us. The students and volunteers also support the projects they work on financially by fundraising before they arrive.
