Building Sustainable Schools and Revolutionizing Education

$8,272 towards $10,000

We Are Grateful for Your Support!

All funds raised are used to support the construction and administration of our pilot greenbuilding academy, Técnico Chixot Education Center, in San Juan Comalapa, Guatemala. In 2017 we have 130 students in grades K-9 and, between the construction crew and the school staff, 46 local employees. To date, we have used over 400 tons of garbage to build 12 classrooms, a welcome center, a four-stall composting latrine, terraced gardens, a computer lab/library and several thousand feet of tire retaining walls.

Gifts of all sizes make an enormous impact. We pledge to keep administrative costs low so that more of your money goes directly into construction materials and local employees' salaries. Thank you for your confidence. With your help we are empowering communities to be the architects of their own future!
