Lack of safety is a great concern in refugee camps. Better Shelter has a door that is lockable from the inside and the outside, which can be secured with a padlock. Thanks to the shelter’s modular design, the door can be placed either on the shelter’s long side or on the gable wall.

The shelter resembles a house, featuring vertical walls, 4 windows, a high ceiling and a door. The door – lockable from the inside and outside – provides residents with a higher level of safety, and the shelter as a structure provides a sense of dignity.

Electricity is scarce in many refugee camps, making it difficult to read, cook and socialise during the hours of darkness. Every ‪‎Better Shelter unit‬ has a solar panel installed on the roof, which charges an LED light inside the shelter. When fully charged, this provides light for 4 hours and can also charge a mobile phone through a USB port.
