A humanitarian solution for living, working and coming together
This 50m² bakery is the heart of the Enkanini informal settlement, South Africa.
Just outside Stellenbosch, South Africa, in the center of the informal settlement of Enkanini, there is a bakery. It is the heartbeat of the community. The bakery is the beginning of habi-nex’s cooperation with InSite, a foundation that teaches young people skills for a meaningful and successful life.
Along with Enkanini's community leader, Yondela, we are working towards the realization of the follow-up projects: more community buildings and also homes. We hope to build a daycare to give the children of Enkanini a safe place to learn and play. habi-nex’s buildings are more stable than most buildings in the community. At the same time, the building is also modular and expandable. To further assist the community, we would also like to expand our services beyond community buildings and provide dignified housing for the residents of the informal settlement.
Habi-nex homes are specifically designed to help people in vulnerable communities. They are made of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) and therefore durable and easy to build. They have the versatility to be both a permanent or a temporary structure. This makes them very suitable as a community building or a private home.
Habi-nex provides dignified housing in areas where it is badly needed. Contact us to discover the possibilities.
