Our Six Pillars of Sustainable Development
Pillar 5: Building Futures
Why it matters
In some of the communities we serve, there are no schools, which means the children must walk hours to attend the closest school. In other villages, there are no health facilities, which means lengthy travel for pregnant mothers, the elderly, and other sick people. Without locations in the community for basic human needs, the futures of the people are at risk.
“Building Futures” is a program that constructs buildings to provide essential services, leading to brighter futures for the people passing through these places. The focus is on safe schools, hospitals, drop-in centres, orphanages, etc.
The Building Futures program works with engineers, contractors, real estate agents, and other professionals involved in the design, construction and sale of safe, effective buildings.
