Fundación Construimos was created by Consucasa Group. It was initially conceived to help construction workers who built other people’s houses and did not have their own.
We are a non-profit organization whose main interest is to provide housing at very low costs to distressed communities in the country. We join efforts with Fundación Santa Teresa de Ávila and some other religious communities in the building of Ciudades de Dios.
Ciudades de Dios are spaces conceived on three fundamental pillars: love, service and prayer. They embrace constructive, social, educational, feeding and sustainability projects.
Fundación Construimos leads the construction and productive projects of Ciudades de Dios by coordinating resources and efforts by participating entities. Fundación Santa Teresa de Ávila leads the spiritual dimension while religious or lay communities link to each Ciudad de Dios on beneficiary programs.
There are 24 Ciudades de Dios distributed in several departments of the country. Fundación Construimos links to them whenever they require constructive processes.
FUNDACIÓN SANTA TERESA DE AVILA
Fundación Santa Teresa de Ávila comes to life on March 19, 2003 with two fundamental objectives:
The Promotion of Spirituality, Awareness of God, and Prayer supporting distressed people by offering education, housing and employment for families, the elderly, and most vulnerable children in population strata 1 and 2. It is a Ciudad de Dios promoter throughout the country. In 2010, this foundation meets Fundación Construimos and together they start boosting the dream to help those most in need.
