The Turn Up program, being divided into rotating shifts, does not ensure the safety of beneficiaries, volunteers and construction technicians. In a short period of time many people pass through the same place, and given the current situation, we cannot take any risks.
So, we decided that this semester, we will not open registrations for the Turn Up program.
To ensure the greatest impact for beneficiaries and an incredible experience for volunteers, we will continue our work through the Keep Up program.
We belive in a world where housing poverty exists only in history books.
Just a Change rehabilitates dozens of homes every year with the help of thousands of volunteers, turning them into places worth living with joy and hope.
