The TECHO approach to housing development

The TECHO approach to housing development

These are the three steps that TECHO takes when working with local communities. 1. First is the Construction of temporary “shacks” in order to provide shelter (these projects are 10 days long and happen twice a year, once in summer and once in the winter all around Latin America, with many temporary volunteers that work with TECHO) 2. Community Development – this is collaborative work between the organization and members of communities 3. Finally we have Permanent Housing projects – the state provides money to low income families in order to create permanent housing projects, TECHO is the liaison that works with communities in order to implement this kind of development.

[This model is a simplified example of the methods that TECHO utilizes in many communities]
