BHI’s mission is big — to build quality health-care facilities for the poor and marginalized around the globe in partnership with international agencies, such as Partners in Health and the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation.
After years of work in Haiti, we are taking on new challenges in Liberia, Malawi, Rwanda, and Sierra Leone; expanding our services to include biomedical equipment repair and distribution; and building new kinds of facilities, such as libraries and schools, to help eradicate persistent poverty.
Each project relies not only on on-site construction expertise but also on coordinated, efficient support from operations staff at its headquarters in Beverly MA, and BHI seeks individuals to join our team who are committed to the mission and values of the organization.
What do we need? Professionals (or new graduates) with experience in ...
- construction management
- site supervision
- design & drafting
- procurement & shipping
If you're interested, send us an email. We'll get back to you.
Experienced volunteer-carpenters needed
Where & When: On the MA-NH border for a few weekends in September & October 2016
BHI will soon start construction of a new library/community center for the nonprofit Haiti Projects in Fond-des-Blancs, Haiti, and the design of the two-story building calls for an angled roof supported by a series of engineered roof trusses (mono trusses), both to cool the facility and to survive the forces of a Category 5 hurricane.
A wood frame contractor in southern NH has generously donated Versa-Lam manufactured lumber for the trusses, which will be pre-cut at its facility there then shipped to Haiti for assembly and installation by a local crew, under the firm's supervision.
We're looking for some experienced carpenters to volunteer some time this fall to cut the trusses. Whatever time you can give is greatly appreciated.
