In September, 2017 we'll be traveling to Nicaragua to build seven homes for families living in slum conditions. Help us get to our funding goal - every bit matters!

BEFORE (i.e. right now)

AFTER (i.e. this September)

THE IMPACT

  • We work with TECHO, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, to build the homes
  • TECHO is a youth-led, world-renowned organization
  • It was started 20 years ago, and has since built 100,000 transitional homes throughout Latin America by mobilizing nearly 1M volunteers
  • Their approach is sustainable and community-led; this is not a one-off and communities are supported for the long term
  • This home will have a locking door and windows for security, solid roof and walls to protect from the elements, and a raised floor.

THE SUPPORT  

  • Funds go to build supplies, tools, day-of execution
  • Every $3k means another home funded
  • On the Journey we stay at reputable hotels, learn from the locals, and support the local economy through sustainable and responsible travel.
  • On this page there are different amounts you can choose to give
  • I humbly suggest $100 or more: this will make it possible for us to hit our goal
