Minimum Fundraising Commitment: $2,500
Location: El Paredon, Guatemala
Project: Build Pavillion-style Community Center
Community Partner: La Choza Chula
Community and Project Description:
Located on the pacific coast of Guatemala, the community of El Paredon is a little known location with a black sand beach, palm trees, hammocks, and a great place to watch or surf the waves. It is about 2.5 hours from Guatemala City, with fishing and agriculture as its main industry.
Our community partner is the only NGO in the community forging partnerships with the local population to improve educational opportunities.
We have been asked by the community to help with the renovation of their community center. The current community center space is in desperate need of renovation, with the roof being replaced several times a year due to heavy rain. The new multi-use salon and community space will be used for meetings, outdoor education classes, graduation ceremonies and presentations as well as providing a central focal point for the school. Join us for the next phase of this incredible project where we continue to work towards providing access to quality education for young people in this small community.
