Impact Data Intern (Spanish)

Help New Story make a mark on the world


We fund life-saving homes and for vulnerable populations across the globe. New Story is a crowdfunding platform that builds houses in Haiti, El Salvador and Bolivia. With three complete communities we are beginning to measure the impact of our homes. While we have strong anecdotal evidence from families, we are developing an impact evaluation program to quantify and assess the impact of housing on health, education, income opportunity and community building.

In the summer of 2015, we were funded by Y Combinator, and in our first 18 months, we've raised more than $3.5M to build communities and to grow New Story. Innovation, impact results, hustle and a "value-first" approach to our work on the ground make up our DNA.
