Students go green

Hello dear friend of Long Way Home (LWH). Here are the latest news from our sustainable school in Guatemala. In Comalapa the rainy season just hit and we have started to collect rainwater. The water flows into our 42.500 gallon cistern from all the school buildings' roofs and serves our daily needs.

At the sustainable school Centro Educativo Técnico Chixot (CETC), middle and high school students went to the next step of their project-based curriculum. After the students have presented their individual community projects in Xiquin Sanaii in February, they now have rolled out a socio economic and environmental survey in the community. The students analysed the whole village, a total of 181 families and their housing situation. Based on the information collected, each grade now will chose their perfect family for their green building projects, considering infrastructure, domestic appliances, health and general living conditions. The students and LWH staff are very excited to complete the community projects of a smoke efficient stove, a water tank, latrines and a tire retaining wall by the end of the year.

The school year at CETC is now half way through and our students ended their second semester with exams. We wish all our students luck with these exams and look forward to what they have planned for the rest of the year. To improve financial stability of CETC and to improve teaching our students, LWH will soon be offering a school sponsorship program. We invite you cordially to partner with our school and sponsor CETC teachers and primary, middle and high school grades with necessary materials. Just $40/month will cover all the resources one student needs, including supporting the teachers.

Last but not least the LWH crew is thrilled to start the first Green Building Academy 1st July 2018. The Academy offers hands-on learning experiences that contribute to the development of skilled and socially responsible green builders. The organisation and planning to making this event happen is in the final phase.Our construction crew, the materials to build the house and the local family to benefit from a new green building housing are ready. Last chance to apply for the July session is this upcoming Sunday 10th of June. Don't miss your chance and share the Academy Event Flyer with your friends! 

Thank you for your interest in our work. We appreciate your support and always enjoy the opportunity to share our stories with you, the people that make them possible!

 

In Gratitude,

The Long Way Home Team
