Shelter for Homeless for $100 Winter Hyde Tent Provides Protection from Extreme Temps

Shelter for Homeless for $100 Winter Hyde Tent Provides Protection from Extreme Temps

There is a design studio located in Singapore called Billion Bricks staffed by designers, architects and building industry pros who believe that buildings for the poor should not be poorly designed and built.

These remarkable and talented people are motivated to help the poor find sustainable housing with the knowledge that over 33 million people in the world need shelter from extreme temperatures.

Prasoon Kumar, founder and CEO of Billion Bricks, is the designer of the Winter Hyde tent.

For $100 per tent, it’s a bargain. According to Winter Hyde, it’s “a life saving fully insulated, lightweight emergency kit that provides maximum privacy and protects the homeless and vulnerable from the cold. It is woman friendly and enables a single person, tool-less installation within 15 minutes and does not need any anchoring” The fabric drape is reversible — in the winter, it keeps body heat in, and in the summer, it reflects the sun

Billion Bricks is working with  nonprofits and governments to reach more homeless people with the product. The company plans for these groups to fund the tents, but is also working on a financing plan that would let homeless people pay for their tents over time.
