In Ahuachapán, El Salvador, many families live in dangerous, dilapidated conditions. Without a reliable home, these families must focus on survival each and every day. They are overcome by searching for clean water and sanitation rather than earning an income, leaving life’s most basic needs virtually unmet. This is about to change.
The Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate network of brokers and affiliated agents empowers the dream of homeownership on a daily basis, and now we are expanding that mission beyond our own communities and borders. We are thrilled to be kicking off a new philanthropic partnership with New Story, a next-generation charity that crowdfunds to transforms slums into sustainable communities.
With New Story, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate will rally to raise funds to build an entire community of homes for residents in Ahuachapán, one family at a time. Anyone who wants to get involved can set up an individual fundraising web page for a specific family or portions of the community. One hundred percent of all donations go directly to fund home construction, and every donor receives a video of the exact family moving into their new home for full accountability—fostering transparency and authenticity.
Take a peek below at exclusive footage of land that will soon be the site of a sustainable community for the Ahuachapán people!
