- ORGANICE YOUR FUNDRAISING TECHO ONE EVENT
Organize your own fundraising event, as an individual or with a group of friends/family, to support TECHO’s mission. We will support your initiative.
All funds raised will be allocated to the country of your choice.
- DONATE YOUR BIRTHDAY
Hold your own dinner party right at home and invite your friends over for the purpose of raising funds to our mission while having a good time. This is a fun way to get your friends involved in our cause. Simply invite them and kindly ask them for any contribution of your choosing.
Of course, not everyone lives in a home ready to host guests so you can get creative and hold it at a restaurant or any other place. It’s your party so you can make it as fun as you want to. We work with each individual case.
- JOIN A BUILDING TRIP
We offer a unique experience as you will be able to build transitional houses hand-in-hand with community members and local volunteers, over a weekend.
You can join individually, as a team with your family or friends, with your high-school, University, or Company.

- CORPORATE VOLUNTEERING
Create a strong bond between employees through Social Investments (donations) that will be used to execute programs according to TECHO’s work model.
With a social investment your company could participate in a high-impact social and corporate project: the construction of a transitional house. Each month we have a specific date in which you can choose to participate. Over two days, groups of 6 to 10 employees of your company will build alongside the beneficiary families and other TECHO volunteers.
- CORPORATE SPONSORSHIPS
Develop your Corporate Social Responsibility by financing Social Programs:
- Community Infrastructure: With your help we support empowered and organized communities in the financing and developing of infrastructure projects that benefit the whole community.
-Education: With your help we develop programs for children in communities that include support in literature and math lessons and specific projects that children lead in order to benefit their communities.
The ultimate goal is to build the community from their youths, giving them a protagonist role in the development of their community.
-Community: With your help we establish community-organizing committees where we aim to validate and capacitate community leaders, who will be in charge of the projects and programs we implement
-Work: With your help we empower people from the communities by enhancing their productivity and developing their capacities to work
- SUPPORT OUR EVENTS

By partnering with companies as partners and sponsors, TECHO has been able to successfully carry out these events year after year.
