Guatemala

 

Project # 6  Guatemala

th-8                th-9

 

Who: International Volunteer Headquarters

What: Building homes and schools

When: April, 2014

Where: Guatemala

Why: The housing deficit in Guatemala is estimated at 1.2 million. Many of these families live in poorly constructed houses made of unstable materials, such as adobe, metal sheets, or wood planks. I will be working with families and other volunteers along with a local foreman who provides guidance and training. We will be laying brick, doing carpentry, painting, laying tile, and landscaping.
