A STORY OF A BRP HOME
THIS IS FLOR'S STORY
for locals by locals
We have developed a modular home design that exceeds expectations of affordable housing in the poorest communities of the Dominican Republic. This design not only responds the needs of a family, but the materials of the region and natural elements of design.
This experience will change you. Change the way you see poverty. Change the way you think and how you can have an impact upon a life. Maybe even change how you live your life.
