About us

Better Shelter is a Swedish non-profit organisation committed to increasing the safety and dignity of forcibly displaced persons.

Hope starts with a home.

We started developing shelters in 2010 with a mission to provide displaced persons with safety, dignity, and hope on their path towards a more stable life in a permanent home.

90,000 shelters in 80 countries

While our work has grown in scale, our small team continues to support our partners and deliver our shelters internationally from our warehouses in Poland, Türkiye and Panama. Since 2015, we have delivered more than 90,000 shelters to emergency, crisis and development programs in over 80 countries.

Local and global partners

We have impacted the lives of hundreds of thousands of displaced people with humanitarian NGOs and INGOs, UN bodies, philanthropic foundations, and academic institutions, including the UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR, the IKEA Foundation and the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat.

A world in which all people have a safe and dignified place to call home.


Provide safe temporary homes for people on their path towards a permanent one.

We are building on our mission everyday through partnerships, providing safety and dignity for displaced people.
