About Us

87de10d4-dea5-42d5-8f22-76eaa169b264Eco-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.

If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity or would like to learn more about how you can get involved, please contact us.
