CONSTRUCTION FOR CHANGE: a nonprofit construction company
We believe that by building infrastructure, we are building opportunity. From schools to medical facilities to community buildings that house vocational training, our network is dedicated to alleviating poverty in the world’s most under-resourced areas. We partner with community-based NGO’s to develop infrastructure and we recruit professional volunteers to manage these projects. These volunteers train and employ local workers and source local materials, allowing for significant investment in the regional economy. We provide pro-bono design and comprehensive project management through our network of expert volunteers and Change Fellows. The resulting strong, sustainable, environmentally sound facilities help to break the cycle of poverty.
819,400 is the number of lives positively impacted by facilities built by Construction for Change.

Partner with Us
We exist to support other nonprofit organizations looking to build or improve its facilities. We believe a physical space can transform a person’s experience and future; we believe infrastructure can help to end the cycles of poverty. We are here to build with you.
Building safe, sustainable infrastructure for nonprofits across the world. We believe by allowing these organizations to focus on providing access to healthcare, education and economic opportunity, together, we can end global poverty.
What We’re Working On
Right now, we are raising funds to build a healthcare clinic with FIMRC in Bududa District, Uganda – a community that faces HIV/AIDS levels twice the national average. But it doesn’t end there: the average annual income in Bududa District is $200/year, leaving the majority of the population in extreme poverty. This 30/30 Project will provide the community with much-needed access to quality, comprehensive healthcare.
Where Does the Money Go?
Your $200 gift may purchase the materials needed to bring electricity to a secondary school for the first time. This allows for better teaching and an enhanced learning environment for students eager to obtain an education. A gift of $140 can pay a month’s fair wages to a local team member hired to build with CfC. This ensures when we leave a project site, it’s not just our partners and their constituents who benefit, it truly is the whole community. These are just a few examples. Whether your interest is in tertiary education, primary care for young families or vocational training for women – rest assured our team is identifying effective partner organizations spearheading high-impact projects across the globe.
