In November 2016 FairBuilding Network celebrated two years of successful collaboration with social building and industry partners to advance the housing needs of the poor. More than 120 representatives from the construction industry, the social housing sector and national and local government attended the festive gala dinner as we celebrated the contributions of our industry peers who helped us make the world a better place!

FairBuilding Network duly recognised the 10 Gold Partners involved in the 25 transactions as social responsibility leaders in the industry and awarded the coveted FairBuilding Gold Partner status. In collaboration FairBuilding was able to initiate 25 procurement transactions that resulted to savings in an equivalent of 1.5 Million PHP through in kind construction material, services and labour.

Our Gold Partners are
  • Boysen
  • Floor center
  • Philips
  • Ambassador International
  • Phinma Properties
  • Lexiar Handyman
  • Matimco
  • Ambassador
  • Jacinto Colorsteel
  • Floor Center

The highlight of the event was the key note speech given by Yolanda Reyes, who encourage the industry representatives to continue and increase their efforts for those living in inadequate housing conditions through engaging in the FairBuilding Network.

Testimonial of Yolanda Reyes
‘We will join hands in making a difference in the lives of others through Fair Building Network, PRC and UAP. Our organisations and a lot of people live in the service for others’.

The performance of the Virlanie Children Choir reminded everyone again of our work’s mission. The girls and boys from Virlanie’s orphanages fascinated the audience with their skills and a highly professional presentation. Their presence made it tangible why a helping hand is so paramount.

We also want to thank our supporters Yatai Omni Lighting and Boysen Paint who helped us realise this event.
