a decade of stories
In 2020 we celebrate the 10 years of Just a Change.
10 years full of impactful stories that we do not want to forget.
We gathered volunteers who wore the shirt for the past 10 years and asked them to put their stories to the paper.
Soon, we will launch a book, with some of the most remarkable stories of the last decade.
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.
