2016 Guatemala Housing Project

  • Balanya Guatemala (map)

With the help of 24 volunteers representing seven states in the U.S., the Dream Team II was formed. We committed to building six (200 sq/ft) homes for deserving families in June 2016. We built in an indigenous community in the highlands of Antigua, Guatemala in an area called Bálanya. With the hard work of our volunteers, we were able to provide shelter, a new toilet, and a shower for each home. Thank you to our donors who supported this project. Because of you, we were able to give each family a double bed or stove for their new home depending on their needs. Also, thank you to our partner foundation, Constru Casa, who selected the families and is doing amazing work to improve the lives of Guatemalans living in extreme poverty.

Because of the continued interest from our volunteers and the relationship we have developed with Constru Casa, housing projects in Guatemala have become an annual project.
