We are looking to use shipping containers to resolve the housing deficit currently affecting Africa at large. 75% of the population make up the middle class and low income earners hence we are looking to fuse this system to accommodate the millions of people at a relatively cheaper price. These containers last over 300 years with less maintenance (10years). it is the surest way to solve the housing deficit as well as sanitation crisis since every apartment will have the necessary and have water flowing. this solution falls under the UN-SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS and solves close to 10 of its solutions.
1.poverty- creates jobs and elevates one
2.clean water and sanitation- provides water since it will be a community
3.good heath – peoples lives will change
4. Sustainable cities and communities- this community will pay for themselves since people will pay rent
5.life on land – gives them a sense of belonging
6.renewable energy – solar usage, recycling water for energy etc
7.jobs and economic growth
8.innovation and infrastructure – could become the biggest user of containers in the world(tourism)
9. Climate action – reduces the haphazard nature of burning, dumping rubbish, reusing containers etc.
