Building partnerships, achieving impact

We supply safe and dignified shelters to our most vulnerable communities in displacement. At Better Shelter, our impact is only as strong as the durable partnerships we have built with governments, UN agencies, NGOs and local communities. We are building on our mission everyday through partnerships in the humanitarian sector, providing safety and dignity for displaced populations. Get in touch with our partnerships team today, and we will connect with you shortly.

Our focus

In collaboration with local and global partners, Better Shelter provides shelter as temporary homes for displaced families to live in safely, and infrastructure to promote improved health, protection and education.





Together with partners, we offer dignity and protection throughout the duration of displacement where our structures are needed the most.


With geopolitical conflicts causing displacement situations to become more protracted, and with the effects of climate change becoming more frequent and intensified, we stand ready to support our partners in their missions to shelter our most vulnerable populations in displacement.

Whether deploying shelters in disaster or conflict responses, in camps or in urban settings, we support partners during the planning, implementation and maintenance.

Relief units

Our modular relief units offer residents safety and dignity. While temporary, they meet the basic needs of daily living and can be upgraded and upcycled.

Relief Housing Unit (RHU)

A resistant shelter that arrives with all parts in a flatpack and is easy to assemble for immediate safety and dignity in emergency response.

RHU Structure

A robust shelter frame that lets residents make incremental upgrades with local material and use it throughout the duration of displacement.

Current projects

We are supporting our partners in responding to the most urgent crisis regions around the world.

Working with local communities to support long term relief after flooding in Assam

Already geographically distant and remote from the urban centres, hundreds of families affected by the floods lost their homes in the eastern state of Assam in India. The Indian-based NGO SEEDS responded urgently by providing RHU Structures bringing the displaced families closer to the shelter-building process.

Our partners

Since the inception of our organisation, we have collaborated with a range of partners across the humanitarian sector, to implement shelters on the field, to conduct research and development on shelter design, and to build on donorships to advance shelter innovation. Below is a sample of our partners, past and present, including government agencies, NGOs and civil society organisations.
