About


Fund a home, then go
build it

LATIN AMERICA 2016

LEARN MORE

In Fall of 2015, 20 people funded 20 homes for families in the slums of Latin America (They did it in less than a month, using the most powerful fundraising platform online- Change Heroes).

Then they embarked on a journey to El Salvador, where they joined local volunteers in building the homes and getting to know the families who would live in them. This was an experiment in social impact, personal transformation, and laying the groundwork for a global community. And it worked. 

We're taking groups all over Latin America in 2016. Join us.
