In India, Mother Teresa graciously helped the poor in her whole life, providing relief to thousands of people. However, slums still exist in Calcutta and every other major city in India. Even if there were a thousand of Mother Teresas, slum problems would not fundamentally be solved. In fact, the situation in slums typically worsens over time. However, some countries have experienced a shrinkage in the number of slums because of the contributions of the private sector.
Come and exchange ideas with internationally acclaimed experts. Finding out new solutions for your country?s low-income housing policy, penetrating market niches in local context, and responding to the needs of the poor without wasting state resources.
