Transforming lives through affordable housing in Brazil
Since 2014 Vivenda, a São Paulo-based social enterprise, has been dedicated to making safe and secure housing accessible to the millions of Brazilians who lack adequate living conditions. Its approach revolutionises the conventional housing construction industry, placing customers at the centre of innovation. This new film showcases the journey and impact of Vivenda, who participated in Dela, a systems change accelerator co-created by IKEA Social Entrepreneurship and Ashoka.
