SLUM

Did you know that every eighth person on the planet lives in a slum? In cities, the situation is even worse, with every fourth person living in an improvised dwelling. It is almost impossible for these people to break out of their situation. 

EQUALITY

Women make up half of the world's population; however, their rights in developing countries are far from equal to men’s. Even though in many countries there is legislation in place allowing women to own land, the reality is often different. This must change.

MIGRATION

Climate change and conflicts are forcing millions of people to leave their homes. If they are entitled to their land, they can return over time. People who do not have valid land rights, lose their chance to return for good. Let’s change this together.

STABILITY

It is amazing that we live in a country where most people own their property. However, in developing countries only 30% of the land is officially registered. Millions of people live in fear of losing their homes, which sit on a plot that someone else can lay claim to.
