Build Change saves lives in earthquakes and typhoons. Our mission is to greatly reduce deaths, injuries and economic losses caused by housing and school collapses due to earthquakes and typhoons in emerging nations.
This video and article detail how Build Change’s process works with builders and their communities around the world to create a safer future.
On April 25, 2015, the first of two earthquakes struck Nepal. Build Change was able to respond and establish a permanent program within weeks.
Now, one year later, our team in Nepal shares the story of supporting many rural communities in rebuilding their homes, schools, and lives.
Why is retrofitting important? It saves lives in future natural disasters.
