It’s not just the roofs we build over people’s heads that make a difference
It’s the respect of the culture and the awareness of the ecological environment; The community working together to addresses the root causes of poverty; The lessons learned by the designers that help them be better professionals; The body of knowledge we accumulate that will make it easier to help others. For all those reasons, we are making a difference. And on May 15, we ask for your support. Please consider a donation by clicking on the GiveBIG logo.
