OUR CHALLENGES

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity (www.habitat.org) is the world's largest non-profit organization with an exclusive focus on eliminating inadequate housing from the earth.  Through their Terwilliger Center for Innovation in Shelter, they engaged with SeaFreight Labs to use crowd-solving to search for solutions to the most intractable problems in housing - problems that keep millions around the world living in substandard conditions.  The engagement consists of four challenges.  Click HERE for more details.    

This engagement is part of our commitment to the Pledge-1% movement.

The first challenge is sourced from the Philippines: Increasing Resilience to Earthquakes and Typhoons for Homes with No Foundations.    This challenge is  looking for low-cost ways to retrofit existing homes built without foundations so they can better survive the frequent earthquakes and typhoons in that country.  Click HERE to visit the challenge.
