About Us

Reclaiming Heritage (Fundación Recupera Herencia)

is a worldwide collective team ​that works on exploring the potentials of using reclaimed building materials for a sensitive post-disaster reconstruction.

Volunteers and students work in this NGO, based in Berlin, Chile and Haiti. We have international cooperation projects with the Technische Universität Berlin, the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and the Université Quisqueya with funding by the Deutsche Akademischer Austausch Dienst, DAAD.
