To date Guatemala Housing Alliance has built 2 eco-friendly homes and we are refining our techniques with each. The next will be built in April/May in the community of San Pablo La Laguna. We will likely be building bajareque with cypress instead of bamboo as it should require less maintainance.
Bajareque building has the advantage of providing many opportunities for volunteers, and each of these two homes had volunteers, both young and old, American, European, and Guatemalan working side by side with the Mayan families, getting their hands dirty and leaving with satisfaction each day.
This project will continue into the future. In the meantime, I will attempt to produce a more attractive fundraiser.
Please look through the photos herein, and on our facebook page.
