We are making headway
Having focused the last 18 months on providing the proof of concept for the FairBuilding Network, we can now see our efforts bearing fruits: The online platform of FairBuilding showcases close to 100 social housing projects sponsored by NGOs, slated to benefit over 50,000 of the poorest families in the Philippines. In terms of tangible outcomes, FairBuilding has to-date initiated 29 procurement transactions that have resulted in savings in the order of 1.7 Million PHP in construction expenses. Industry partners involved in the 29 transactions were duly recognised as social responsibility leaders in the industry and awarded the coveted FairBuilding Gold Partner status at a high-visibility gala event in Manila in November 2016.
What is the FairBuilding Network?
The FairBuilding Network is a free online platform that helps Non-Profit Organisations (NGOs) with building projects and social housing developers to connect with building product suppliers, contractors, subcontractors, architects and engineers who are willing to help.
How does it work?
We help NGOs such as Habitat for Humanity and social developers such as Phinma by listing their building projects on our online database for free. These building projects can include any type of building project which benefits the poor or underprivileged such as residential housing, schools, local hospitals, etc.
Suppliers of building materials and products (such as bricks, concrete, flooring, tiles, wood, window frames, etc) or contractors of building services and trades (such as electricians, plumbers, carpenters, etc) can become Partners of the Fair Building Network for free and search the online database to view projects that they can help with.
Help from our supply Partners can come in many forms including discounted prices for slow moving stock, free supply of redundant stock or charging a lower rate for contractor services. Even supplying goods at normal wholesale rates could help!
Every little bit counts so help us make a difference today.
