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 has developed an early-warning system to reduce the damage and destruction caused by the spread of shack/slum fires in urban informal settlements

Many cooking, lighting and heating methods used by people living in informal settlements produce smoke
Lumkani detectors use rate-of-rise of temperature technology to accurately measure the incidence of dangerous fires
