Every Shelter - Co-create new, life-dignifying solutions for refugees and displaced people
Making Every Shelter  Feel More Like A Home

Making Every Shelter Feel More Like A Home

Of the world’s 82.4 million forcefully displaced, millions live in shelters — but the shelters they are given don't last. Families are effectively forced to camp for years with materials that last for months.

86% of those displaced take refuge in developing countries that already struggle with unemployment and low wages.

Every Shelter believes in the human capacity of both the refugees it serves and the host country communities. It’s time we empower these communities to help solve the global crisis.

Every Shelter designs and delivers life-saving shelter solutions with and for refugees. Our solutions are sourced and made in developing countries that host. Why? So that our goods not only create safe, stable shelters but create opportunities in the process.

We are starting with multi-year shelter tarps made out of discarded billboard vinyl. While producing our tarps, we had some scraps leftover and thought it would be cool to turn them into…
