Our Story



was incorporated in 2013 by its founders Tatiana Smith and Ben Tshribi.  Our desire was to transform the world of international development by applying sustainable techniques that would solve the current crisis and propel future generations.

The organization we envisioned would not just provide temporary solutions to permanent problems.  With the increasing disparity between poor and rich, our organization believes that more resources and sustainable solutions are needed for the low-income populations, to fuel the middle class. To obtain the dream,  we wanted PHIDAS to focus on business, education, health, urban planning, and community program development. These five sectors represent the pillars of thriving communities.  Simply put, our mission is to challenge development to sustain tomorrow’s generations.
