TECHO [TEH/choh], meaning roof in Spanish, is the largest Latin American non- profit that is transforming slums into sustainable communities, while promoting youth leadership in an innovative way.

We provide housing and infrastructure projects, education, employment and leadership training programs for children and adults in more than 620 communities across 19 countries.

Following a multidimensional approach, we empower families living in slums in order to become leaders of their own development. We are convinced that poverty can be permanently eradicated if society as a whole recognizes poverty as a priority and actively works towards overcoming it.
