About Article 25

The 25th Article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights asserts that adequate shelter and housing are fundamental to our human rights. Article 25 works to enable this right by building solutions to global problems.

Article 25 is a UK registered charity that designs, builds, and manages projects to provide buildings for some of the world’s most vulnerable communities.

Article 25 provide the skills and knowledge needed to make safe and appropriate building projects possible.  We leave behind more than just a building, using each project to pass on essential knowledge and skills to local communities and NGOs, increasing their capacity to deliver their own construction projects.

Good buildings and infrastructure are essential for accessing human rights and achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). You can’t halt the spread of HIV without health clinics or provide universal education without building schools and training centres. Through the creation of buildings that deliver essential services and support we place human rights at the centre of our work.
