Objectives

We at Article 25 work to enable this right by building solutions to global problems. We provide the skills and knowledge needed to make safe and appropriate building projects possible. Our vision is of a world where all people have access to dignified shelter and housing, adequate and safe school buildings and effective clinics and hospitals. As such, we aim for superior architectural interventions in 3 main areas - education, healthcare, disaster resilience.

Activities

Article 25 is one of the very few charities in the world, and the only one of scale in the UK, directly providing architectural, project management and ancillary services with a humanitarian mission. We do so through an in-house design and project management team, adding the expertise of engineering firms to the team as necessary. We help some of the most vulnerable communities around the world to build schools, clinics and houses or to rebuild lives and livelihoods in the wake of disasters and conflicts.

We work closely with local people and partner NGOs and so develop an acute understanding of prevailing conditions, capacity and resources. By applying the best principles of architecture and engineering, we design beautiful buildings which serve as resilient, functional, and safe places for education, health, working and living. Through training, we exchange knowledge with local communities and build capacity. In 11 years, Article 25 has carried out 85 projects in 34 countries touching the lives of thousands.
