Eco-Shelter was founded by Alexa Bednarz after spending seven years working in design and delivery of global health products at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Alexa’s interest in roofing began after reading several studies which suggested housing improvements –and roofing in particular– were financial priorities for many low-income households globally. After living and working in New Delhi, India Alexa began to learn more about the housing and roofing issues faced by many low-income Indian families living in informal urban settlements.
Eco-Shelter is supported by dedicated advisors, volunteers, and partners in the U.S. and India lending their technical, financial, legal, and development sector expertise.
