As we enter the third trimester of 2015 we are wrapping up work on 35 family homes in Santa María de Jesús thanks to Selavip and Corazon de los Niños, finishing off three homes with Alimentos Sumar and beginning the first four homes in Samox. In the area of community constructions work continues on the Ciudad Vieja Niños de Guatemala secondary school and we are putting finishing touches on two preschool classrooms in Berlin, Mixco.

35 homes in Santa Maria de Jesus

In this rural community, just 15 minutes from Antigua, close to 60% of families live in poverty.
