ABOUT US

Fundación Construímos is created thanks to the Consucasa group that donates a third of the fiscal profits of all its projects. It was initially born to help construction workers, who build other people’s homes and do not have a home of their own.

We are a non-profit entity, whose main interest is to provide housing at less cost to the most needy communities in Colombia. We join forces with Fundación Santa Teresa de Ávila and religious communities, building cities of God.

The cities of God are spaces conceived on three fundamental pillars: love, service and prayer; proposes constructive, social projects for food, education and sustainability.

Fundación Construímos leads the construction of the cities of God coordinating resources and efforts of the participating entities, Fundación Santa Teresa de Ávila leads the spiritual dimension and the religious or lay communities linked to each city of God, live and work there.

There are 24 cities of God distributed in various departments of Colombia. Fundación Contruímos is linked to them as they require construction processes.

CITIES OF GOD

Fundación Construímos supports the integral model of the cities of God and joins them, complementing their development in the constructive part and generation of resources. The cities of God emerge as new projects through the alliance between different foundations or by joining existing projects. Today there are already 24 cities of God distributed in various departments of the country, Fundación Construímos is linked to them as they need to initiate construction processes; reason why at this moment it supports 15 cities of God.
