Our goal is to provide sustainable and affordable housing all over the world.

A derivative of the Northern Togolese language, Lamb-Kabyè, Oxara means, “Gathering and Community.” Bringing the actors of the construction ecosystem together to collectively create an innovative and sustainable industry is a key ingredient to make our business scalable and to achieve our vision of providing safe and decent housing to all.  

As a purpose-driven company, we believe the need for a more sustainable construction industry presents tough challenges and at the same time big opportunities to generate value for the environment, our business, and the society as a whole. 

Our values trust, curiosity and compassion guide us in our endeavour. 

 

Nobody can do everything but everyone can do something
