Challenge

Poverty in Colombia increased in 2018. According to statistics agency DANE, some 190,000 people slipped into poverty while some 26,000 were able to raise their income to above the poverty line. 34% of the Colombian population is in poverty and 10.4 % in extreme poverty, living with less than 1USD a day.

Solution

TECHO'S model of intervention focuses on the most isolated slums in Colombia. The collaborative work of families and young volunteers who work to produce concrete solutions to the problems of poverty is the key driver of our interventions. TECHO promotes a continuous community strengthening process, with community development as the most essential component of the intervention model.

Long-Term Impact

The application of lasting and sustainable solutions is promoted in slums. Such solutions include the regularization of property, basic services, housing, infrastructure and local development. TECHO advocates for families living in slums by linking them with government institutions, so they can demand their rights.
