The weekend of march 14th we concluded an amazing construction activity, probably the last one in some weeks due the COVID precautions; We still have not reached any donation through GlobalGiving :( , but we are doing our best!Through the collaborative work of families living in extreme poverty with youth volunteers, TECHO seeks to overcome poverty in slums. TECHO is convinced that poverty can be permanently eradicated if society as a whole recognizes poverty as a priority and actively works towards overcoming it.Latin America and The Caribbean has one of the highest urbanization rates in the world. Between 2000 and 2030, the urban population of Latin America and the Caribbean will increase from 394 million to 609 million.Our emergency housing program aims to reduce housing vulnerability through working together among volunteers and families in the slums. It also aims to promote community strengthening through the construction of emergency housing, understanding housing as a fundamental human right and as an improvement in the quality of life.Our emergency housing program is focused on solving a primary necessity: protection and security against the environment. This basic need is the most urgent and one that we have identified as an organization as a priority.
