Techos Pa' Mi Gente
Our organization, Toldos Pa' Mi Gente, began in response to the devastating passage of Hurricane María through Puerto Rico in 2017. At that time, Amarilis González, director of the organization, received too many blue awnings and began calling for volunteers to help in the installation of blue awnings that arrived from different parts of the United States through their social networks. Together with known and unknown volunteers, They decided to look for houses that had lost their roofs during the hurricane.
However, during this process they realized that the awnings were no longer sufficient or strong to provide a long-lasting solution. In addition, they encountered a lack of support from the government of Puerto Rico in the recovery of these roofs. It was then, in 2018, when we made the decision to seek monetary donations to acquire the necessary materials and begin building adequate and resilient roofs.
This is how the organization Techos Pa' Mi Gente was born, with the objective of building resistant wooden roofs using the knowledge of architects and following the construction instructions of the College of Engineers of Mayagüez. Over time, we have worked tirelessly to repair decent roofs in Puerto Rico. Our commitment to the community and to the people of Puerto Rico has driven us to continue forward to this day. We will continue to build strong and safe roofs, providing hope and improving the quality of life of people affected by natural disasters.
