At Rebuild Response®, we’ve taken our values of improving the lives of those we encounter, especially in the insurance industry, and transferred them to those living in poverty. We have partnered with local efforts in Guatemala to provide financial resources from each rebuild project to better others’ quality of life.
Since a personal mission trip to Guatemala in 2015, the Streek family has personally been donating time, money, and resources to aid poverty alleviation efforts in remote villages. This passion seeped into the family’s corporate social responsibility activities when Harmony Homes, the first Rebuild Response® builder, began donating a portion of profits from each project to rebuilding the villages’ mud and stick structures into sustainable and durable cinder block homes.
Now, Rebuild Response® Group dedicates profits to alleviating poverty in those remote communities, especially with rebuilding homes, helping malnutrition, and providing access to education and employment.
Before & After
Here’s an example of the clay and stick hut rebuild projects in one of the Guatemalan villages. The new structures include:
- Exterior walls for improved long-term structure
- Metal roof for sustainability
- Windows and doors for weather protection
- Cinderblock stoves replacing open fires for health and safety
