When Architecture for Humanity began we spent much of our time explaining the importance of design to community development partners and others. Today, thanks to the generous contributions of donors like you, the 89 projects we've completed around the world are tangible examples of why design matters.

Our projects have shown what can be accomplished when architects and designers reach out to rebuild communities. However, we can't do it without your support.
