We will make

poverty history

Most people look at the world today and wonder: how can they help make a real impact? And when that wonder leads to action, they discover that it is possible to make a difference, driving change towards a common goal. We call them Changemakers.

TECHO is a movement of Changemakers: individuals and institutions joining forces and taking action to restore hope for millions of families living in poverty. We are transforming communities by building homes, empowering community leaders, and improving the lives of thousands of families in the slums of Latin America and the Caribbean, so they can regain control over their lives and jumpstart their dreams.

As Changemakers, we won’t rest until poverty is history, one nail at a time!

Our purpose

ENABLE CHANGEMAKERS

TRANSFORM COMMUNITIES

Today there are over 200 million people living in poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean. No proper home, no potable water, sewage or electricity access. TECHO is aiming to change that reality. Volunteers, partners, donors and families living in poverty, all working together to create system-changing solutions to end poverty and shape a future we all want to live in.

Maybe you think we’re aiming at the stars, but we believe the combination of bottom-up thinking, collaborative approach, with a massive engagement of Changemakers can create a new world without poverty. And we’re already building it, one nail at a time!
