'Moladi' is a modular home that is designed to help meet the demand for affordable housing in South Africa. In many parts of the world, there is a severe shortage of housing available for low-income residents. These inexpensive shelters could provide a solution for housing a large amount of people in a short period of time.

Moladi is a modular shelter that is designed for quick assembly. The home itself features a simple construction, which allows nearly anyone to learn how to assemble the structure. The idea is that communities can employ local residents to build the shelters instead of hiring outside labor. Not only are the homes easy to build, but they are also inexpensive.

The simple modular design makes the Moladi's shelters an ideal solution for meeting the demand for affordable housing in countries like South Africa.
