Ghana has a steep deficit of two million housing units. The vast majority of those affected are low income earners and the emerging middle class. This situation has created the phenomenon of family housing where large groups of people, on average ten or more, live together in a single house. This presents the perfect conditions for the transfer of communicable diseases such as Tuberculosis. House a Million will strive to bridge this deficit by providing affordable yet sturdy housing to families on generous terms tailored to suit indivudual financial situations. House a Million is unique in that our business model requires collection of rent at the end of each month. This is in stark contrast to the prevailing conditions in Ghana where land lords ask on average for at least six months of rent in advance as well as numerous loyalty and good will fees. We are purely interested in providing a worthy service without any unncecessary fees. We at House a million believe in building green homes that will stand the test of time. The targeted neighborhood for our pilot houisng project would be a well developed area with access to power, internet, water and phone lines and also would be just fifteen minutes away from the main motorway.
