Stage 4: Transition to Scale
After successful implementation of a 34-shelter pilot in conjunction with USAID, UNHCR, and GVC-Italia in northern Lebanon, we are now scaling up to a larger pilot of 250 shelters in Northern Lebanon and 250 shelters in Kutapalong, Bangladesh.

Funds Raised to Date
With DIV funding, Good Works Studio is testing a low-cost temporary raised flooring solution - known as the Emergency Floor (E-Flor) - that helps vulnerable families living in refugee camps stay healthy, warm, and dry and provides environmental benefits by repurposing waste.
How does your innovation work?
We are the only flooring system specifically designed to address the cost constraints and logistical challenges of shelters organizations. It can be used on the bare ground, paired with shipping pallets or sand bags where a raised flooring is needed. It can work with any shelter on the market and is easily and intuitively installed by anyone.
