The Building Communities Initiative (BCI) is a global team of multi-disciplinary consultants working in concert to realise our mandate:
“Through innovation and technology, we build quality, self-sustaining communities in collaboration with the citizens of emerging nations”.
We understand that the necessity for quality, affordable, sustainable housing goes beyond providing accommodation, extending to improvements in public health, mental health, education and overall quality of life. These improvements in themselves create employment and other opportunities for long-term economic development. We also recognise that the provision of complementary infrastructure, training and support services is as important to the success of the community as the houses we deliver.
We believe in a consultative approach to community development with community and stakeholder engagement as the foundation of our operational brief.
Our team of experts has a clear vision for achieving this mandate on a scale and at a speed that will make a significant contribution to accelerating development for the countries that partner with us in our programme.
We are seeking benefactors to help fund the research, design and project planning of our first community. With your support we can realise our Mandate and make the dreams of thousands of African families come true.
We also seek partnerships with progressive governments, landowners and developers to participate in this process, to be pioneers in realising this enterprising vision for their communities.
