TECHO

TECHO is a non-profit organization that seeks to eradicate poverty in disadvantaged communities through the joint action of local community members and young volunteers. TECHO focuses primarily on building homes, roads, community centres and providing water solutions for informal settlements in Latin America and the Caribbean. Our funding has allowed TECHO to offer rapid support to families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

CHALLENGE

In Latin America, 1 in 4 urban residents live in a situation of poverty in an informal settlement or rural village. Seemingly invisible, these populations must subsist on their own, without access to the most basic services. The coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated this difficult situation.
