Minor Construction

DirectConnect provides greater quality of life for individuals and communities through minor construction and infrastructure improvements. This includes upgrades to shelters and orphanages through the installation of quality windows, upgrading bathroom/shower facilities, and structural improvements to kitchens and sleeping areas.

Infrastructure projects we have implemented include wheelchair ramps and small bridges made of concrete, with safety railings, that connect villages, replacing the old bridges that were made from bamboo.
