Charlottesville's Building Goodness Foundation (BGF) is kicking off its 15th year with a slew of new projects to help those in need. The organization announced projects on the next big build during a press conference at CitySpace in downtown Charlottesville Tuesday morning. 

BGF will undertake eight international projects in the coming year in several different countries - including one in Africa.

Tuesday, those who have been to the sites where projects will get underway spoke about the importance of them.

BGF is working on a women's health clinic and birthing center in Haiti along with a new a school. In El Salvador, BGF wants to design a clinic. The organization also wants to build a women's health clinic in Liberia.

"Liberia we found to be a country that Liberians love. War has taken a horrible toll and the healthcare resources are woefully inadequate. But there's a lot of hope and potential and resilience in the people," said Susan Goins-Eplee, Building Goodness Foundation.

BGF is also kicking off a slew of local projects. Those include working with places like the Music Resource Center and the Barrett Early Learning Center.
