Filmmaker's note

We were deeply moved by the story of TECHO and the impact it's making on people's lives. The joy of a young girl seeing her family's newly renovated home inspired us to bring this story to the world.

That's why we're passionate about creating this animation short in support of TECHO. We want to spread the message of love, hope, and the transformative power of adequate housing. Join us in supporting TECHO's mission to build homes and change lives.
