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.

John Lothrop

John LothropJohn has been a volunteer building houses with Constru Casa three times beginning in 2013. He joined the Friends of Constru Casa Board of Directors in 2014.

John retired in 2006 after a career with AT&T Bell Laboratories as a systems engineer. In retirement, he has served in fundraising roles for Doane College and for the American Indian Science and Engineering Society.

He volunteered for his first trip with Constru Casa because he wanted to help people. He continues to work with Constru Casa because he feels that the organization is making a very positive impact on the lives of the people of Guatemala. John agrees with the statement that “from those to whom much has been given, much is expected.”
