Never worry about numbers, help one person at a time.

Situation: Housing is essential

Housing is one of those basic social conditions that determine the quality of life and welfare of people and places.

Solution: Build houses with an integrated approach

The response to the poor is rooted in relationships, not just resources. This means actively integrating the families in need in the home building process to give them a sense of accomplishment, providing job opportunities as well as counseling to help them grow.

Therefore, Build & Grow is not simply about providing a roof to families to raise their children, but also about creating a sustainable community for them and letting all participants grow their personal and social skills.
