Testimonies from the volunteers:

This experience allowed me to develop more empathy and perspective about the problems that we have in our country. I am very proud of Flex because we carry out these types of activities, and through them we demonstrate our social responsibility. I also am proud of the Flex Team: we left our hearts in the community which received us with warmth and acceptance.

Building realities with TECHO, I discovered the great responsibility that we, as a society, have to promote instances that guarantee each of the members of our society get the basic necessities to face life, something as basic as a roof over their heads. We dedicated one weekend and the satisfaction was immense. Thanks for this opportunity.

This was an unforgettable experience, where the only objective was to give a decent place to live to a family, that until that day only had plastic and blankets for a roof. Thanks a lot for making this happen.

Being a part of volunteering program for TECHO for a weekend was quite a satisfying experience. We had two days to help a family improve their life situation by doing just a little. Each family had a different history and different needs. Many times, these families are there because they have no other options and lack the resources and opportunities they need to get ahead.

While I know that no matter how much I may do, I cannot change their situation, but whatever contribution I can provide to make a family happy over just one weekend has been one of the best experiences I’ve had. It was a weekend of coexistence, new experiences, and great achievements. Only two days with one goal and one objective gave me an experience that I would undoubtedly repeat again. Thanks to Flex and TECHO for this weekend!

This experience had a positive impact on a local community, where people now have a better understanding of the role education plays in providing access to better opportunities. When the volunteers set out to help this community, their original goal was to build 5 houses. Their dedication resulted in a total of 11 houses built. These 11 families now have a provisional wooden house that will provide shelter and the hope of a brighter future.
