Design & Build

rise’s flagship “in loco,” program consists of a design, build and entrepreneurship training program with cohorts of between 10 to 15 fellows for a period of 6 to 12 months depending on the complexity of the project.

Design and build is an integrated approach delivering architecture and construction services under one contract, collaboratively. in loco brings together recent university graduates from all built environment disciplines to gain much needed practical work experience on community projects. Thus improving infrastructure for vulnerable communities while at the same time creating educational opportunities and entrepreneurial training for unemployed youth wanting to become entrepreneurs. 

Created to have a real impact in the lives of all participants, our approach promotes learning from life, skill sharing, and capacity building.
