People living in extreme
poverty in Bogotá
Cost to build one home
Homes funded by RY Yugen as part of TECHO Colombia's largest single-scale build
What We're Doing
In partnership with TECHO, we are raising funds to build transitional housing for families in need. Not only does your donation go towards providing a home, each family can also attend workshops, get job training, learn health education and take advantage of other development opportunities so they can pursue a better life. Get a closer look at the homes to be built by the Yugen Build Project below.
Who We're Helping
Many of these families had to flee their permanent homes to escape violence. As a result, they currently live in one of the world’s largest “mega-slums.” Now, they are just trying to find a way to give their loved ones a brighter future.
Who We Are
We are a group of people who decided to leave our homes to travel the world on Remote Year Yugen. For us, 'home' is a developing term. We find it in the people we travel with and in the communities we visit. Yugen Build is about giving that safe, warm comfort of home to those who need it most. In Bogota, we have the chance to continue making a lasting, positive impact on hundreds of lives.
