People Deserve Better Cities

We work to improve resilience and quality of life of low-income Communities.

We Design for Social Impact

We are a social venture that focuses on improving the quality of the informally built environment in developing countries.

Our interdisciplinary think-and-do tank works towards the goal of making our cities more resilient and socially inclusive. 

By leveraging data, technology and participatory processes, we develop innovative services and technological products to support and empower vulnerable communities to be more resilient to natural hazards and ready to adapt and contrast the effect of climate changes.

* The Stichting mHS Global Impact has been closed on March 2024. After 14 years of activity, the founders decided to close this professional chapter. The learnings and insights of this journey will stay and be transferred elsewhere. We still believe in the NEEV digital tool. Hopefully it will find a place where to be hosted and its way for adoption at scale. We thanks our Board, all the people that has working with us in these many years and our donors and partners.
