Un Techo para mi Pais (UTPMP) strives to improve the quality of life of impoverished families through the construction of transitional houses and the implementation of social inclusion programs. UTPMP denounces the precarious reality of the slums in which millions of people live in Latin America. UTPMP works to involve the general public in the building of a more united, inclusive, poverty-free continent.
Sixteen families have been living in temporary quarters in Caracas, Venezuela.
UTPMP uses a three-stage method to achieve long-term, sustainable change in the social structure. At the core of our approach is a focus on empowering the poorest sector of the society, insuring that beneficiaries become the main protagonists of the process. To do this, we rely on the involvement of thousands of volunteers who work hand-in-hand with families living in slums, fighting for the common goal of eradicating extreme poverty.
UTPMP seeks to engage Latin American countries in a social inclusion process that will allow them to develop as sustainable communities.
