About us

A derivative of the Northern Togolese language, Lamb-Kabyè, Oxara means, “Gathering and Community.” Oxara envisions gathering a global community and providing it with access to sustainable and affordable housing.

A value and purpose-driven company, Oxara believes in serving society starting with its own community of employees and clients. We are finally responsible towards our shareholders. Oxara believes a diverse and inclusive environment regardless of ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual preferences, or age are key to its success. Therefore, it strives to foster a company identity, culture, and foundation of knowledge that emphasizes personal and professional development.

While Oxara alone cannot solve the housing needs of more than 2 billion people, it can work hand-in-hand with a global community to achieve the dream of a sustainable and affordable home.

 

Nobody can do everything but everyone can do something
