Urban Planning & Sustainable Building Development
Many cities around the world suffer from haphazard development patterns that have left certain communities isolated from the rest of the city. These makeshift communities are often separated from the resources and facilities such as schools, hospitals, and food stores that help increase people’s quality of life.

Read more about why urban planning and connectivity are so important to communities around the world including makeshift communities like the Shanties of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. 
SIG and GBES Team Members would like to thank MUST Ministries in Marietta for letting us come out to work with your team to prepare and serve lunch to community members as well as sort clothing donations in your warehouse for our Q1 Philanthropy events. We enjoyed the opportunity to help out!
