THE BACKYARD HOSTEL
CHANGE • RESEARCH • ARCHITECTURE • INNOVATION • DESIGN
C-RE-AID is a registered NGO which deals with sustainable and social architecture.
The non-profit organisation is also the reason why the hostel exists: the Backyard Hostel's sole purpose is to generate income to help finance C-RE-AID's projects. If you want to know more, scroll down or visit their website.
C-RE-AID stands for Change, Research, Architecture, Innovation and Design. It is a Tanzanian and Belgian registered NGO launched in 2012 that uses architecture to reduce poverty through design, fieldwork and construction, the empowerment of local craftsmen and the reception of students in architecture, interior architecture, engineering and product design.
Projects are conducted with the assistance of volunteers and aim to create cooperation between the C-RE-AID team and beneficiaries. C-RE-AID collaborates with families of various backgrounds, social relations and material possessions. Beneficiaries are selected by partner organisations and local authorities.
C-RE-AID is divided in five branches: Groundwork Projects, C-re-aid Plus, All-round projects, Workshops and the Backyard Hostel. Yes, that's us. Keep reading and you'll know what the other branches are up to.
