We have developed self-sustaining business models in the construction industry to improve the livelihoods in the countries in which we operate. Through these models, we support society by building durable infrastructure that contributes to the resilience of the cities and communities. We further bring together communities and local authorities to tackle critical social issues such as credit, housing, employment, basic services, resilient infrastructure, and public spaces.
Our two overarching programs for this pillar are comprised of one program that focuses on developing integral affordable housing solutions that contribute to the economical and psychological wellbeing of their inhabitants; and another which focuses on facilitating mobility solutions for people with disabilities, campaigns for efficiency and accident reduction rate in transportation as well as promoting resiliency through awareness and new building models.
According to the World Bank, 26 million people are left in poverty yearly due to disasters. Disasters are socially constructed; they are a result of natural or anthropogenic phenomena and human activity. Rapid, extensive migration results in infrastructure incapable of serving this constantly growing population and thus increased risks.
Through our Resiliency and Urban Transformation Model we transfer our knowledge for promoting a culture of prevention and rapid disaster response.
