Construction for Change - Partner Highlights
The Construction for Change (CfC) mission is to create safe, sustainable infrastructure for nonprofits across the world. From schools and refugee centers, to community buildings and health clinics, the CfC network is dedicated to alleviating poverty in the world’s most under-resourced areas. The organization’s impact is widespread, with projects in Solomon Islands, India, Cambodia, Kenya, Zambia, and more.
Today, we’re honored to have a small role in Construction for Change’s global impact. We regularly donate design talent and consultative hours to CfC’s projects, and members of our structural team serve on CfC’s Pre-Planning Committee, a group of internal staff, architects, contractors, and estimators who collaborate to evaluate potential projects and address a program’s needs, details, and challenges.
MEDICAL CLINIC – RAGHOGARH, INDIA
Raghogarh’s Medical Clinic is one of five proposed clinics which will serve the 235,000 people in the Raghogarh region of Madhya Pradesh, India. CfC will use this clinic to pilot and refine their model, then further expand in India, where one in four children suffer death, many due to malnourishment and lack of effective medical treatment. Construction recently completed, the Optimize Health clinic provides care for more 5,000 people. Utilizing a combination of dedicated Community Health Workers, innovative technology (mobile apps, interactive cloud-based medical records, and more portable diagnostics), and streamlined protocols, this clinic will provide high-quality care in one of the most impoverished states in India.
WOMEN’S PROTECTION CENTER (WPC) HETAUDA HOUSE - HETAUDA, NEPAL
The WPC offers refuge to victims of human trafficking, abusive or abandoned homes. It’s a secure home for women and their children, offering case management, advocacy-based counseling, tutoring and educational development, and vocational skills training programs. The five-story concrete structure broke ground on September 26, 2016, as soon as the rainy season allowed.
