Community Development

Many remote and rural communities in Guatemala lack basic infrastructure, including community buildings such as schools or libraries, running water, drainage, and electricity. Natural disasters have also destroyed infrastructure in rural communities, which has never been repaired or replaced due to lack of resources and little government support.

Our Approach

We collaborate with rural communities, NGOs, and government agencies to improve and develop community infrastructure. Our Construction Team designs, develops, and repairs classrooms, schools, hospitals, and other community centers.
