Wells of Hope is excited to announce the initiation of two new school building projects to  commence in Guatemala on November 1st:


Alcoba, which translated means ‘the balcony’ is aptly named, perched near the top of a mountain overlooking the town of Jalapa. It is a very remote community with limited access to resources.

Currently two groups of students take  classes inside a cramped  adobe brick room, while a third group has to study outside under a make-shift canopy:


Men from the community have already begun levelling the ground and building new washroom facilities:


El Quetzal is a small village located closed to Campo Esperanza. Most of the students  currently take classes in  classrooms with dirt floors,  held together with metal laminate and  plastic sheeting,  which makes the rooms  uncomfortably hot  under the sunshine, as well as very wet when the rains come.

A small contingent of Canadians led by Wells of Hope board members Ben Obdeyn and Frank Memme will initiate the project, turning it over to a local bricklayers who will complete the work over the following months. Screen Shot 2015-09-29 at 11.26.46 AM
