Finding Housing Solutions with Marginalized Communities
LinkBuild, Inc. is a social enterprise that provides development finance and delivers innovative housing projects for urban poor living in informal settlements and high risk areas across the Philippines. Founded in February 2014, we are one of the two latest additions to the Philippine Alliance, a grouping of 5 organisations who have as their common mission to provide sustainable shelter solutions to the urban poor through community driven processes. LinkBuild was formed in order for the Philippine Alliance to deliver sustainable housing to scale for Homeless People Federation Philippines Inc. members, affiliates and partner community networks. They have a unique approach to pro-poor urban development. With the support of the members of the Philippines Alliance, they advocate and promote community-led development processes. Through HPFPI, they are able to collaborate with self-organising communities and deliver bespoke housing that caters their real needs. Their goal is to deliver housing projects that are financially self-sustaining, affordable and resilient. LinkBuild’s team builds on 10 years of expertise providing housing solutions for marginalised communities across the country.
