Build Change Philippines

Build Change is an award-winning, systems change catalyst that develops and scales societal solutions to overcome three critical barriers to adoption of disaster-resilient housing: money, technology, and people/political will, to create a world where no one dies in earthquakes or hurricanes.

Founded in 2004, Build Change has offices in Indonesia, Nepal, the Philippines in Asia Pacific, and has worked in Bhutan, Cook Islands, India, Iran, Micronesia, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Vanuatu, and in a dozen other disaster-prone countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Build Change and its founder have been the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2017 Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship, and has co-launched the Global Program for Resilient Housing with the World Bank.
