Greetings from Colombia and the Philippines

We are pleased to announce that we are now working in Colombia and the Philippines.

Nazaire Fran�ois Dit Vileresse
Proud carpenter and trained builder in Port-au-Prince, Haiti 

After training with us, Nazaire said, "I'm extremely proud of what I do and I'm not going to build anything that I think won't be safe. It can be hard sometimes though because the cost and work could mean you lose the job to somebody else who doesn't care about quality. I once needed to accept a fridge freezer as payment for a job so the homeowner could cover the cost of employing me." Learn More.
