    Frustrated that less than two percent of the world benefits from architectural services and that one in seven people live in slum settlements, Cameron Sinclair co-founded Architecture for Humanity, a non profit that seeks architecture solutions to humanitarian crises and brings design services to communities in need. For the last six years his team has initiated and implemented a number of programs including post-Katrina disaster relief in New Orleans, housing ideas for returning refugees in Kosovo; mobile health clinics to combat HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa; mine clearance programs and playground building in the Balkans; and disaster recovery assistance in Grenada, India, Iran and Sri Lanka
