Botswana Innovation Hub

Better Shelter and Botswana Innovation Hub have launched a pilot programme in Kweneng West, Botswana. Several shelters will be evaluated as accommodations for citizens with small means. While property prices are soaring, many people lack access to adequate housing. The beneficiaries of this pilot programme will be selected with the assistance of local social workers in certain settlements and small villages.

During the Better Shelter team’s training, two shelters were assembled in the village of Khekhenye and one in Tshwane, located in Kweneng West.

Botswana Innovation Hub will introduce the Better Shelter units to communities as an alternative, cost-effective, and sustainable type of accommodation for persons without adequate space to call home. Together with other stakeholders, Botswana Innovation Hub will evaluate the units and assess whether any modifications are required to meet the beneficiaries’ specific needs.

Botswana Innovation Hub, established in 2008, promotes technology-based innovation and entrepreneurship. Through in-house and partner programmes, it offers various training and networking events to build capacity and create an innovation ecosystem.

Botswana Innovation Hub and Better Shelter worked together already in October 2014 – a team from Better Shelter installed a prototype on their premises as part of the shelter’s development process, and we’re pleased to be able to continue working together with the Innovation Hub to improve vulnerable people’s lives further.
