The TECHO Project
- The Dakar is donating 112,000 dollars. This sum will be directly donated to TECHO’s projects and programmes, conducted with the inhabitants of places through which the rally will travel. For example, in 2017, the donation made contributed to work carried out by volunteers and inhabitants in underprivileged neighbourhoods in Paraguay, in Bolivia and Argentina, to support community development.
- The “Únete a la carrera contra la desigualdad” campaign (join the race against inequality) is an invitation to competitors and support teams on the Dakar Rally to acknowledge and attempt to improve the lives of more than 100 million people living in the underprivileged neighbourhoods of Latin America.
- The riders and drivers on the Dakar strive to meet an almost impossible challenge, as do almost 104 million people living in poverty every day, in the underprivileged neighbourhoods of Latin America. This is why the Dakar is supporting TECHO for the 10th consecutive year. This year, you can also become ambassadors of TECHO. Your route has inspired many, so invite them to support this good cause!
