Summary

In Mexico, millions of families live in poverty. This can mean many things: improvised houses, dirt floors, lack of access to public services such as water and sanitation and being ignored and excluded from the rest of society. TECHO proposes a solution: progressive housing. We plan to build 20 houses for families who live in poverty: 10 in Puebla and 10 in the State of Mexico. This program has the goal of encouraging independence and belonging within the community.

Challenge

In Mexico, millions of families live in poverty. This can mean many things: improvised houses, dirt floors, lack of access to public services such as water and sanitation and being ignored and excluded from the rest of society. This situation poses a sense of urgency that massively mobilizes young people to search for concrete and lasting solutions to the problems these communities face every day.

Solution

TECHO proposes a solution: progressive housing. This program meets the urgent housing need we find in most slums; it builds a bond of trust between the community and volunteers through joint work, and it mobilizes youth to take part in overcoming poverty as a society. This program is a specific, tangible, achievable and quick-to-implement solution. The houses we build are prefabricated modules of 215 square feet, built together by volunteers and families of the communities.

Long-Term Impact

This project looks to better the conditions of families who live in poverty. We believe that through community-organized work, the resolutions reached and the solutions proposed have a better and more successful implementation rate, for these are reached by consensus within the community. Our programs have the goal of encouraging the development of independence, belonging and of empowering the members of the community to, lastly, generating solutions according to their needs and possibilities.
