Article 25 is a humanitarian architecture charity. We use design to improve health, livelihoods and resilience to disasters.


Our Mission

We are driven by Article 25 of the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states that everyone has the right to adequate dignified shelter. Our vision is of a world where all communities have access to better housing, safe school buildings and effective clinics and hospitals. We provide the skills and knowledge needed to make this a reality.

Our Impact

Article 25 has worked on more than 90 projects in 34 countries, empowering communities out of poverty through our design and build projects. Working closely with in-country partners, we put capacity-building at the centre of our projects, so that the impact of our work lives on well beyond our projects. Take a look at our work.




We work closely with a dedicated team of talented volunteers so that we can deliver the greatest impact with every single pound donated to us.



We have developed over 12 years of humanitarian architectural expertise to create beautiful, safe spaces for learning, healthcare and shelter.



As a responsive resilience-focused organisation, we go wherever there is need, and work wherever local partners want to build back better buildings.

“We create change with people, not to people.”
