WHO WE ARE

Founded in 2004, Build Change is a nonā€profit social innovator whose mission is to greatly reduce deaths, injuries and economic losses caused by housing and school collapses due to earthquakes, extreme weather, and fire. Our global experience shows that home improvement programs focused on improving existing housing can be carried out successfully across a range of country and disaster contexts. To do this, we implement programs that are both economically and socially sustainable.

Our approach looks beyond construction and engineering to create an environment in which people want to improve the safety of their homes, and in which it is possible and affordable for them to do so. Systems change can only be achieved by overcoming the major barriers to success for resilient housing programs, which include People, Money, and Technology. Build Change is currently active in South East Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, South America, and the United States.

Build Change is the recipient of multiple awards, including a 2017 Skoll Foundation Award for Social Entrepreneurship, 2016 OpenIDEO Urban Resilience Challenge Winner, and was a top-three finalist in IBM’s inaugural Call for Code Developer Challenge in 2018.
