Jinkai builds peaceful, thriving and economically viable communities
Our housing model is a creative and professionally executed design solution from students in Nigeria’s Architecture schools. The students desired to connect people and places – to honour tradition, relate to the land, bring comfort, use local materials, celebrate culture, investigate the future, and create a ‘home’ above shelter.
Over 2 million persons have been displaced in Northeast, Northcentral and Northwest Nigeria due to ethnoreligious violence. Most of this population are women and children, bearing the brunt of the effects.
