Description

Techamos Una Mano works to use light-weight materials and new technology to solve the housing shortage issues in Oaxaca. Several government programs at the federal and state level seek to resolve the housing shortage in Oaxaca. However the large number of Mexicans in poverty makes it impossible for these programs to cover the total population in need. Construction volunteers are needed to help build homes.

Techamos Una Mano is a Oaxacan non-profit foundation that seeks, with the participation of citizens and volunteers, to create positive social and environmental impact in its community. Starting with TUM’s sustainable building technique, the organization achieves a double objective: improving living conditions of badly marginalized families, and raising awareness among the population of the importance of reusing inorganic solid wastes.
