Help us to keep on building

Support

Constru Casa works in alliance with social partner organizations to provide a holistic approach to lifting families and communities out of extreme poverty, beginning with the provision of basic housing and continuing through health and education programs. 

Constru Casa receives support from different donors including individuals, companies, churches and foundations. Without their support it wouldn't be possible to complete our construction, health care and education projects and to help the families and communities in Guatemala.

Constru Casa also works directly with different private companies, that have social responsability programs, from all around the world. If your company is willing to support us, you can contact Constru Casa via e-mail, contacto@construcasa.org 

We would like to sincerely thank all of the volunteers, Universities, Colleges, High Schools, churches, organizations and companies for their support of our work! This support comes from all over the world and in many forms. Below is a list of our many supporters, without whom we wouldn’t be able to continue our work.

How can we work together to build better lives in Guatemala?

Constru Casa is constantly looking for partners and donors, specifically in the United States. There are different ways to help us to carry out our mission: your company, college, university, high school, church group or any other institution can help us through donations or to subsidy Constru Casa's work. We also encourage forming a group of volunteers and come to Guatemala to help in the construction of a house for a family or in a school project: a very special way to collaborate and effective in 'team building' programs. If you are interested, please read more about the volunteer program and potential itineraries in our volunteer section.

The average cost of a finished three room home for a family is $4,800 USD (approximate depending on current exchange rates). Should your company, church, student group or Foundation wish to collaborate with Constru Casa, please contact us at contacto@construcasa.org.

It is always possible to help a specific family or project with your specific donation; we will always inform you about the use of your donation and will provide you a full report of the finished project.

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!
