This March, Constru Casa celebrated its 13th birthday, and we know that thirteen will be our #LuckyYear.  To date, Constru Casa has built over 975 houses, and 2017 will be the year that we reach house #1,000!

With your help, we can also make 2017 a #LuckyYear for families living in extreme poverty in Guatemala.  For a small monthly donation you can make a big difference in the lives of one of our families. 

Did you know that for just $25 a month you can provide a kitchen package to a family in need?  With your donation, Constru Casa can provide an energy efficient stove and water filter drastically improving the health and living conditions of a family in need.
