Help us Provide up to 7,300 Showers (and Toilet Stops) for the Homeless each Month!
An increasing number of individuals and families are struggling with a lack of affordable housing worldwide, whether it be fleeing a family-violence situation, relationship breakdowns or being jobless. Whilst we would love to help provide free accommodation, this is not financially viable at this time. However, we know the need for showers is immense and provides dignity, so we’re providing somewhere to use a toilet and shower…with your help.
We do this by providing all the infrastructure at cost price, situated on donated or Government land, or on the back of a container truck.
Podular are committed to helping solve this growing phenomenon with non-for-profit Project Dignity. Each day of operation costs about USD$100 including operational costs and the costs of facility and truck (Amortised over 7 years)
If you’d like to be involved, we’re soon raising money on Indiegogo or donate right now via our donations below. (All funds go to solicitors trust account):

A little about project Dignity
We exist to fight a simple yet significant issue – the lack of showers and toilets for men, women and families who are moving through homelessness Why? it’s simple. dignity matters and is a very real desire of every single person, regardless of circumstance.
Our customized amenity contains 5 private bathrooms and showering facilities –Each set has its own sink, mirror, toilet and shower.
What we need & where your donation goes
Our operating costs for one container module (6 toilets and 6 showers) is estimated to be USD$36,584 for each year. Here’s where that money will go:
- Cost Price for the buildings
- Shipping and transport
- Site and Earthworks where required or;
- Comprehensive insurance.
- Electricity and water
- supplies – we will be supplying all the usual shower items (shampoo, conditioner, soap, towels, etc.) (PS things like nail clippers, underwear, feminine products, etc, are needed too)
When we exceed our campaign goal, we’ll put the money towards rollout in other locations.
Many of the men and women we know who are homeless will tell you that a shower is the difference between setting up an interview or not; is the difference between landing that job; is the difference between keeping that job. We feel opportunities present themselves when people are treated with Dignity, and something as basic as a shower can be a catalyst for change in the lives of those we serve.
