African Project Development Initiative


Africa has the highest rate of population growth in the world at 3.17% per year with a population of over 1.4b people. The population of sub-Saharan Africa is 1.1B and it`s projected to double by 2050. Africa is the world's second-largest continent with 11,508,000 square miles of land, which is 20.3% of the Earth's total land area.

The top 100 cities across Africa have a population of close to 600m people and most people can afford to rent than buy a property, but there is no country on the continent that is currently able to meet the housing needs of its population.

The GDP of individual countries and the continent at large is also on the rise, but so are the problems this continent faces; shortage of affordable housing, lack of clean portable water, poor sewage and garbage disposal systems, power outage, lack of schools and lack of clean budget hotels.

The UN reports that African cities become the new home to over 40,000 people every day, many of whom end up either roofless or in poor housing. According to the International Finance Corporation, more than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas and an additional 2.6 billion people will be living in cities by 2050, mainly in developing countries, with a 3.17 growth rate, investing in property in Africa is like planting a tree, because the demand is huge.

This means the continent provides great investment potential in attempting to partner international and local stakeholders in addressing the needs of local communities through two initiatives that can bring fantastic benefits to Investors and local people & their governments.

In the light of the above, Value Construct Group UK has launched the African Community Development Initiative (APDI), which embodies two projects, namely, the Africa Affordable Housing Initiative and a continental budget Hotel chain.
