You have the power to change lives.

Access to land lies at the heart of ending poverty – without land, there can be no housing and housing is the key to stability and opportunity.
By using your voice to improve access to safe and secure land, you can help create the foundation for better housing.

Good news – we are already making change happen.

Solid Ground is improving the way people access land globally to ensure that more people have a decent home.

Change Has Begun.

But we haven’t realized our vision of a world where everyone – and we mean everyone – has a decent place to live. Yet. This is where you come in.
