Slum housing, Colombia


Latin America and the Caribbean

In order to see a radical change in the housing situation in Latin America and the Caribbean, we have to do much more than help build and repair houses. We must educate ourselves and others, promote the cause of adequate housing and advocate to influence the systems, policies and laws that affect access to housing and infrastructure.

Dialogues about public policy

Help raise a collective voice in defense of the right to adequate housing. Through local and regional messages, we seek creative ways to advocate for every person in every country of Latin America and the Caribbean to have a secure home in a safe community.

This is the moment to be part of the solution. Help us to place poverty housing issues in people’s heart and mind in such a way that inadequate housing is socially, religiously and politically unacceptable.
