THE RESULTS

Together, Change Heroes, Techo and OSD successfully launched and ran the pilot Impact Journey in El Salvador. Over $60,000 dollars was raised by 10 Change Heroes campaign runners, enough to fund 20 new homes in rural El Salvador. In December 2015 participants journeyed from Canada and the US to the rural community of Marvin. The participants joined over 100 local volunteers, and collectively built 20 homes over the course of the weekend. Participants then journeyed to a small beach town to recharge, reflect and determine how to carry this action forward in the future. A video produced from the pilot journey can be found here. Currently, OSD is working with Change Heroes and Techo to design and run a series of new Impact Journeys to Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and other destinations in Latin America that will result in over 200 new homes for families in 2016.
