Volunteer trip to Guatemala

We are a highschool class of twelve students from a small Waldorf High School. For our senior trip we will work with the organization “From Houses to Homes”, building a lasting healthy home. In the poorest areas of highland Guatemala, improper building materials, a lack of appropriate resources, and unsustainable architecture turn houses to foul rubble in the blink of an eye. Many families live in makeshift homes that are constructed of nothing more than cornstalk or cardboard walls with dirt floors. Decrepit housing quashes hope, fuels health problems, and destroys family unity. "From Houses to Homes" recognizes that flourishing homes and thriving communities begin with improving actual home structure. “From Houses to Homes” works with the poorest of Guatemalan families to build or rebuild houses, making them strong, safe, culturally appropriate, and affordable to maintain. These homes become the foundation for a community building process. We are really looking forward helping with our labor and getting to know the family who will enjoy the fruits of that labor.
