Construction

Proper infrastructure and efficient systems are key aspects to the health and well-being of local communities. Communities with a lack of basic infrastructure face issues such as insufficient access to clean water, sanitation, inefficient educational and health-care services.

In low income areas, such as the ones our projects are based in, social infrastructure such as recreational areas, libraries and sports facilities are in very poor condition or sometimes absent. These facilities are important for social cohesion and children’s development.

Our construction projects focus on addressing basic human needs and aim to help protect those most at risk. We work to build or improve key infrastructure, and thereby, improve the communities’ access to healthcare, education, and children’s development.
