Standard Housing Prototype


Leonila and her three children live together in a dilapidated mud hut in the village of Shimbwe. The country where she lives is divided over three uncles, one of the uncles has let Leonila live there for 24 years. She does not own any property outside the cabin, in exchange for the piece of land that she receives she has to take care of the land and the family cattle.

She is in a difficult living situation, so it is of vital importance that she gets her own house.
