Project Bayit Launch: how you can help with South Africa’s housing crisis.

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you know where your domestic worker/gardener/employee lives, and under what conditions? Most of us avoid these awkward conversations that reflect societal inequality and injustice. In this session, Gina and Andrea will introduce Mensch’s Project Bayit,  a co-financed housing programme. The aim is to help you to help a family close to yours to gain access to a structurally sound, fire- and flood-resistant home in a matter of days. This exciting session lays out the whole process including discussion, site inspection, loan credit assessment, construction and  co-financing.
