ABOUT POVERTY AWARENESS CAMPAIGN (PAC)
Together for a #ZeroSlums world! TECHO, Univision and Pace University, are hosting Poverty Awareness Campaign (PAC), a full week in October dedicated to generate awareness and engage communities outside Latin America to help eradicate poverty by 2030.
PAC will be held in New York City, October 6-8, with focus on “Poverty and Inequality in the Cities: Innovation and Action”. The Campaign is intended to be a powerful platform of change aiming to educate, activate and turn New Yorkers into key players to help solve this global issue.

TECHO [TEH/choh], meaning roof in Spanish, is a youth-led non-profit organization present in Latin American and the Caribbean. TECHO seeks to overcome poverty in slums through collaborative work between families living in poverty and youth volunteers.
TECHO is convinced that poverty can be permanently eradicated if society as a whole recognizes poverty as a priority and actively works towards overcoming it. Following a multi-dimensional approach to overturn poverty, TECHO mobilizes youth globally and empowers families living in slums, in order to transform slums into sustainable and organized communities across 19 Latin American countries.
