WorldHaus Affordable, Eco-Friendly Modular Kit Houses

Energy; Housing, Shelter, Homelessness



Through its unique design, WorldHaus represents a modular housing cost breakthrough that represents an order of magnitude decrease in the cost of housing. WorldHaus radically drives down the cost of housing by maximizing local labor and minimizing the use of costly building materials. This allows WorldHaus to feature a home with a solar electric lighting system, integrated wiring, ventilation, and a cook stove to customers for less than $1,000.

We are working with rural banks, micro-finance institutions, and local governments in India to provide financing and loan guarantees to make WorldHaus accessible to families at or below the poverty line. At $20 per month, WorldHaus represents a real chance for families to move into a house that can radically improve their lives.
