Mission and vision

Mission:

Constru Casa's mission is 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.

We strive to accomplish our mission through:
  • The construction of sustainable houses for families living in extreme poverty.
  • Provision of basic housing, existing house improvements and additional products.
  • Consulting, project management, construction and supervision of developmental projects for communities. 
  • Providing training and counseling for families and communities before, during and after the construction, to ensure proper use and maintenance of the new building.
  • Collaboration and assistance to our strategic partner organizations in the areas of education, health, environment and programs for community development. 
Vision:

Constru Casa’s vision is that families in Guatemala will not suffer from poverty, exclusion and dependency, and do not have to endure bad living conditions anymore. Through housing, education, healthcare and community development programs, these families will become socially and economically developed and independent.

Values:
  • Professionalism
  • Transparency
  • Efficiency
  • Cooperative spirit
  • Service
  • Honesty and Integrity
  • Respect and Cultural sensibility

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!
