Despite there being a lot of poverty amongst people who are housed in government housing projects, some even still lacking in essential services, there is resilience and an optimism that is hard to beat amongst many of the African townships dwellers.
Sometimes government housing projects tend to look overcrowded with an institution look and feel to them. Sometimes they degenerate over time into dirty, crime-ridden areas that nobody really wants to call home.
Africa has and continues to have a need for urgent affordable housing, turning its land into profitable government housing projects. In developing a piece of land for residential use there are many things to consider and numerous options to review in order to provide the most beneficial plan.
There is a huge shortage of housing for the poor in nearly all the continents of the world, and Africa is no exception. There are many huge construction companies that are busy helping to create affordable bulk housing villages and towns which are proving to be cost effective, good quality houses.
When it comes to government housing projects on the African continent, plenty of planning and provision of necessary services will be required to make these bulk housing schemes a success.
