October 20, 2016

More than 40 million Brazilians live in housing that suffers from residual damp, mold, and poor ventilation, all factors that contribute to serious public health problems. Jardim Pantanal is a poor community, in the East Zone of São Paulo built on wetland at the edge of the city. High humidity and frequent flooding mean many residents live in housing that is permanently damp and in constant need of repair.Founded in 2014 Moradigna provides building and renovation services to low-income households in Jardim Pantanal, helping residents improve their living environment and their health.

Matheus Cardoso, founder of Moradigna is a resident of Jardim Pantanal. “When families realize they can transform the whole house they feel empowered, knowing that they can live in a better environment. Its is not a privilege, it’s a human right. A house is the most important part of many peoples lives, to Moradigna, making people feel comfortable and healthy inside their own home is very gratifying.”

Currently, Moradigna employees +22 workers from the local area and has transformed more than 100 houses, impacting more than 500 lives. Moradigna has proven that there is a huge unmet demand of this kind of service in low-income communities in Brazil.
