Dear friends, I want to share some exciting news with you about the school project in the community of El Triunfo in Guatemala.
On Wednesday, members of the community and the Consejo de Desarrollo Comunitario (Community Development Council), which oversees the school, purchased $11,000 worth of building materials with your donations. This will enable construction to start immediately on the second floor of the school and high school classes should be able to start next year!
Additional materials may have to be purchased for the school and the teachers still need to be paid until November. Your donations are always welcome and can be directed to Pueblito Canada.
My next trip to Guatemala will be in mid-July for the annual celebration of the establishment of the school. Perhaps one or two of you could join me?
Thanks for your support.
