Our Mission: As a non-profit organization, Cardborigami’s mission is to provide immediate transitional shelters for people who are homeless and for people who are displaced around the world.
Our Product: A fold-able shelter that provides instant privacy and weather protection for those who have none. These shelters are water-resistant, flame-retardant and recyclable. The shelter itself is sustainable because it is manufactured locally and, after the life of the shelter, can be easily recycled.
Construction of one shelter requires only 30 minutes and two people with no further assembly needed. It opens or closes in less than a minute and can be quickly folded back into a size that is easily transportable by a single person.
1. Uniting the best of design and humanity, inspiring collaboration and directing resources toward the alleviation of the problem of homelessness.
2. Self-sustaining financial support of the population we serve through the sale of our shelters for disaster preparedness and relief.
3. Directing profits toward funding our homeless aid efforts and thereby minimizing reliance on grants and donations.
4. Aiding the transitional process of relocating and maintaining permanent housing and successfully re-integrating homeless individuals into society.
