A year ago I went on my first TECHO building trip. There I found what helping others was truly about. Giving someone a home in a place were things that we take for granted such as clean water, sewage, electricity, and education often doesn't exist, was truly the experience of a lifetime. Since my first time I've organized a building trip where we raised $10,000 to build four houses and just completed my third trip. I recommend this organization to anyone who is willing to get your hands dirty on an incredible weekend helping others. At 13 years of age, I think my trips that I've been on have been some of the greatest experiences of my life. Thank you TECHO for all of your help and support, and I can't wait to start coordinating another trip for December!
TECHO makes me feel that I'm really making a change to end poverty because I am. They really work their hardest to better the situations for millions of Latin Americans who are living in extreme poverty.
Volunteering at TECHO made me realize the real situation of my country and how many hondurans work hard everyday pursuing a better life for them and their children. Working in the communities and meeting so many stories like a single mother who has to go to the city to work to feed their children or a worker who struggle every day to bring food to his home, these are things that makes you want to keep volunteering in TECHO.
