Summary

GivingTuesday 2020 is here! With your help, your favorite green builders - Hugo, Romeo, Juguete, Miguelito, Isaias, Roberto and Adam - will be able to begin construction of the Science Lab, the building that will signify the completion of the original architectural plan that Mateo and Adam envisioned for Long Way Home, a little over 15 years ago!

Challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic greatly affected both the community of Comalapa and Long Way Home's organizational operations in 2020. Due to the cancellation of projects, our construction schedule was delayed, our HeroSchool curriculum redesign was postponed, and we were forced to find ways to stretch our budget so as not to affect our collaborators - some of our builders were sent home as a safety measure, others reduced their working hours, and some decided to seek other temporary sources of income.

Solution

Construction of the Science Lab means the opportunity to bring all of our builders home and continue to provide them with employment. It also marks the gradual restoration of our operations, as it will be the first project we will work on in 2021. A fundamental part of our HeroSchool curriculum, the Science Lab will provide our students a space to marvel at science - and we all know that today, more than ever, we must believe in science and ensure that future generations are interested in it.

Long-Term Impact

The Hero School at Centro Educativo Tecnico Chixot is a unique program implemented in grades 7-11 that engages students in a project-based learning that improves critical thinking and problem-solving skills in a way that also teaches them to be active participants in their communities. Through the process of identifying families in need, designing and budgeting for the project, and building the project, our students learn employable skills and improve the quality of life for the community.
