Lumkani is a social enterprise that seeks to address the challenge of shack/slum fires in urban informal settlements in South Africa and across the globe. Lumkani aims to create social impact in two ways. Firstly by increasing the safety and security of people living in informal settlements with technology-based early-warning systems, and secondly with affordable relevant financial services products, such as our Lumkani short time fire insurance for informal homes.

Lumkani is already detecting fires and creating value in urban slums, all the while collecting data around its technology, the fire challenge, and the human experience. Lumkani is looking for Fellows to join them in analyzing data from their product and coming up with insights, experiments and prototypes to test on the field with its users.
