Press for Progress - International Women's Day 2018


Last week the Centra team celebrated International Women's Day. The theme for this year's campaign was #PressforProgress. Centra is so proud of the women excelling and making positive gains on a daily basis within the company. For Centra, #IWD is an opportuntity for collective action and shared responsibility for driving gender parity and there's no better time to take a step forward towards gender parity within the workplace. We took a tour around the office and asked some of our team members what #IWD means to them. Take a look below to see quotes from some of our Centra employees on #IWD2018.

A New View On Life


"The biggest shock was when we got the power bill. It was steep and that was an indicator that it was time for new windows."

You can’t judge a book by its cover and the same goes for a house. The house, including the windows, are just the outside cover to the stories that live inside of them. True to our Centra Cares mission, we want to help a deserving family get those well needed home renovations. To help their windows, be an accurate reflection of the people living inside.

Nicaragua: Project Complete and Reflection on this Experience


Wow, our team managed to complete everything we were tasked to do, and then some (minus a couple rooms of electrical). This was one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever been a part of. I strangely loved the grueling work and getting my hands dirty, especially in mixing cement. I also got to happily engrave ‘Centra 2015” in the concrete walk way. It was incredible to see all the children around us every day, taking the shovels out of our hands and wanting to help. Even with the language barrier, we could tell they were so happy we were there and wanted to help us.

Nicaragua Day 3-Skittles, Human Jungle Gyms, and more


Today we started the hospital project in Nicaragua. We are working on a site that shares property with a school, so there are tons of young children running around watching and are entertained by the new faces.

If you know me at all, you know I love kids; So this was quite exciting for me.
