About Us

Shelter for Africa is a non-government not-for-profit organisation that carries out low-cost housing construction and develops commerce and trade through various support activities for the people of the Republic of Sierra Leone in West Africa. Our goal has now shifted to provide the opportunity to these people to become economically self-reliant. We aim to engage people in income-generating activities, or even to help them set up independent small-scale businesses. Shelter for Africa runs a Building Material Training Centre in the Kono district, east of Freetown. At the Centre, people are trained in the production of affordable building materials such as: stabilised soil blocks fibre concrete roofing tiles “Hydraform” interlocking blocks
