USING DESIGN TO SAVE LIVES

______

 

Design

    • Our programmes are spread over 85 projects in 34 countries, impacting more than 1 million lives. 

    • We will create functional, beautiful, resilient buildings that are comfortable to use.

    • We aim to make “a lot from a little” – using earth from the site to make bricks, recruiting unskilled workers and training them on construction techniques.

  •                                     “The most important part of design is finding all the issues to be resolved. The rest are details”. – Soumeet Lanka

    ____

 

Evidence

    • We partner with multilateral institutions and universities to research and apply an evidence based approach on the role of design in development.

    • Working with project partners, universities, academics and other agencies, we will develop an evidence-based approach to out work on the role of design in development, so that we know we have enabled effective outcomes.

 

Outreach

    • We have reached over 10 million people by helping to shape the design and evaluation policy at Red Cross, DFID, UNICEF, World Bank, and many others.

    • We will influence policy makers and decision makers on the importance of “resilience over reaction” in tackling natural disaster response efforts, and our global approach to fighting poverty.

    • We will also deliver CPD (Professional Education) and advocacy in the UK to raise the profile of our work.

LOOKING AHEAD

Goal setting (Short and long term)

NEXT 6 MONTHS

We will continue to develop agreed goals & success metrics to evaluate the impact of our projects.

We will use this continuously to improve future design, and we will share the data with other NGOs to promote the power of humanitarian architecture.

 

“Community is a consequence. It results when people come together to accomplish things that are important to them and succeed.” – Richard Cornuelle

___

NEXT 12 MONTHS

We will continue to diversify and expand our fundraising capacity to help Article 25 support a great number of projects and to make Article 25 more financially resilient.

We aim to raise an additional £260,000 over this period through a combination of six cornerstone supporters (£180,000), 10 small and medium enterprises (SMEs) from the built environment sectors (£60,000), and the remaining £20,000 through a mix of individual giving, grants and challenge events.

 

 

 

                                                                                                                                                 

IN 18 MONTHS

Using our evidence-based approach to project design and delivery we will expand our outreach work.

Our aim will be to raise the profile of the important role humanitarian architecture can play in building resilient communities, in tackling poverty and improving the impact of disaster relief response.

 

 

 

5 YEAR GOALS

We will enlarge the scale and impact of our work, for example delivering a school building programme rather than an individual school.

We will create a heightened level of awareness of Article 25 and humanitarian architecture across the built environment industries.
