Cornfields to Classrooms!

Can you help us turn this corn field in the Guatemala jungle into a school!

Nearly 100 students turn up to this empty field every day to try to get an education and pull themselves out of poverty.   When it rains, there are no classes.  There are no books, no blackboards and no teaching materials since there is no place to store them.

The mayor of San Antonio Suchitepequez has generously offered to purchase the land if we, with your help, will build the classrooms. This will guarantee the children a place to learn for many years to come.

The local community is contributing already by fundraising, selling home cooked tamales to help with costs. Parents and other community members are excited to help with tasks such as clearing the land and will help with the construction labor.

Where possible, we will buy all materials locally and hire all local laborers. This helps empower local businesses in an impoverished community where the main employment is subsistence farming or working on large rubber farms for extremely low wages under harsh working conditions .



WE CAN GIVE THESE CHILDREN THE SCHOOL THEY DESERVE!  WE ARE ALL SO GRATEFUL FOR YOUR HELP!!!
