We believe that well-designed, well-constructed, beautiful buildings create opportunities for people and communities.  We are a nonprofit organization that builds and renovates homes, schools, clinics, and community spaces for disadvantaged people, both locally and internationally.

Building Goodness volunteers come to us from the construction industry – they are architects, engineers, builders and tradespeople. Together, we build the places where children learn to read, where women deliver babies, where youth discover their talents, and where parents provide for their families.
