THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR YOUR SUPPORT! We not only reached our goal, we surpassed it by 8%!
With the funding secured and a new year, PUC Guatemala is back and in full-force! We kicked off semester by volunteering on MLK day at Urban Roots, a community farm that works to empower youth. We thought it would be a great way for our team to get a better understanding of what Garden of Hope / Huerto la Esperanza does in Guatemala! While we were there, we learned to plant onions, celebrate small victories, and made lots of new friends!
This semester we will be working hard to get detailed project drawings. Currently, we're working on the building's wall-sections and interior layouts. Along with design, the logistics team is busy preparing the budget sheet and the itemized list for our kitchen. On the community engagement side, fun activities with the kids are being planned with inspiration from our volunteer day at Urban Roots! This semester will be both exciting and fun as we plan for our trip this summer to Guatemala!
Thanks to all the donors for your contribution! Without your help, this project wouldn't be possible. We will be updating our Hornraiser and Facebook with our progress, so stay posted!
