Our Vision & Mission

“Our vision is to see urban poor people, communities and cities integrally transformed, renewed with hope and equipped to promote human transformation and seek justice.”

“Our  mission is to build a holistic and scalable change model, equipping urban slum communities to work towards their own lasting transformation.”

Our Story​

The work of Urban Transformation was birthed in the summer of 2006, though its vision and mission were in the making since 1991. Founder Jean-Luc Krieg, together with his wife, Shabrae, and our first team of four people, hailing from Zimbabwe, Switzerland and the U.S., they brought Urban Transformation to life in a slum community of Chimalhuacan.

The early years were concentrated on research, building intentional relationships, and engaging in hundreds of one-on-one conversations that eventually resulted in small citizen committees who in turn carried out different community improvement projects.

Over the course of the last 10 years, we have grown our organization and its impact. Our holistic model of urban transformation is being implemented in three communities, and our broad-based coalitions are impacting five municipalities in the Eastern region of Mexico City. Every year, our work benefits the lives of over 10,000 slum dwellers.
