Journey’s implementing partner TECHO works in 19 Latin American countries building transitionary homes and empowering communities to become self-sufficient. Families are selected through an application process, and put forth a portion of the cost of the home. We work alongside these families for 2 days and conclude with a ribbon cutting ceremony presenting the finished home.
