Our projects in Peru and Guatemala made some exciting progress in the construction of new school facilities for underprivileged children.
|Guatemala: With a festive ceremony, the first stone for the additional classrooms of the San Antonio School was laid. Various community members and committees gave passionate speeches and, as is tradition, a pastor blessed the new ground. Parents and teachers are thrilled to start building the foundation for a better education for all their children.The official opening is planned for July 2019 because the construction work can mainly happen during the school holidays.|
|Peru: The construction of one significant part of the school is underway – the toilets. It might sound unspectacular but clean, functioning sanitary facilities are key to prevent disease from spreading and ensure hygiene standards. Similar to Guatemala, the construction team and the community has to wait until the upcoming summer break before starting phase two – the construction of the upper level for additional classrooms. The children are already excited about the grand opening for the new premises, scheduled for the end of April 2019.|
