2017 Guatemala Housing Project

  • Panajachel Gautemala (map)

In 2017, the JD Sheth Foundation took 44 volunteers to Panajachel, Guatemala to build a three-room addition to a school and three houses. The school for blind and deaf children needed additional classroom space, so over the course of two weeks, our volunteers added on three new rooms. The first week’s group focused on building the interior and exterior walls. Then the second week’s team mixed and poured all of the concrete flooring and did the final touch-up work on the walls. As an extra special touch, one of our volunteers, Joshua Mackey, painted a mural on one of the walls in the school. Thank you to our partner for this project, Constru Casa! They helped find the families in need of the housing and coordinated the addition to the school.

Thank you to our corporate sponsor, Pollux Systems, Inc., for contributing toward the funding of the school! And thank you to all of our volunteers who continue to support our projects!
