In Ahuachapán, El Salvador, many families live in constant danger.

Community members currently live in shacks made primarily of rusty metal sheets, plastic tarps and garbage bags. The terrain is prone to landslides, and the homes are next to a polluted river.

In Ahuachapán, El Salvador, many families live in constant danger.

Community members currently live in shacks made primarily of rusty metal sheets, plastic tarps and garbage bags. The terrain is prone to landslides, and the homes are next to a polluted river.

These families deserve life-changing homes.

We can give the people of Ahuachapán access to safe homes to improve health, increase educational opportunities, and secure a brighter future.

Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate and New Story are teaming up to transform a rural shack slum in Ahuachapán into a beautiful community.

THIS IS HOW WE DO IT

We’re giving families the foundation for healthier lives.

This new community will be built from the ground up using labor and materials directly from Ahuachapán. An investment in these homes is also an investment in the local economy.
