About Us

Constru Casa is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the quality of life among Guatemalans living in extreme poverty through the provision of basic housing, support programs and community development projects related to health and education.

Latest News

Keep up to date with all the happenings at Constru Casa! We are constantly building and improving lives in Guatemala with the help of our volunteers, donors and social project partners. For an insight on our latest projects take a look at our latest news, our in-depth family stories, and our photo gallery.

Volunteer

Volunteering at Constru Casa offers a unique cultural experience. Our volunteers share intensive work time with the local masons, and have the opportunity to share the lives of an underprivileged Guatemalan family, all the while contributing to improve their lives through the building of a new house. You can also enjoy living in one of the most beautiful cities in Guatemala--Antigua!

Donate

We need your help! The number of families Constru Casa can help every year depends on the donations we receive. A Constru Casa house costs $5,000 including all materials and labor.

SimoneGroup

Last month we were delighted to welcome back Simone Kenny from Australia. Simone has been a serial organiser of volunteer groups for ten years. This time she came with a great group of friends that all donated to, and joined in to help us build two, 3 room houses in San Felipe close to Antigua.  It was always going to be a challenge to get both houses completed in the six days they were here, but these Aussie muckers made it look easy! We are also delighted then that Simone will be coming again in January with a huge group of 35 students from Eltham College in Melbourne. They will continue working in the remote community of Hacienda Vieja that her previous group from Eltham started last year. We can't wait for that! Thank you Simone, and thank you to all your amazing volunteers!
