Over 250 people in attendance for the Grand Opening of Centro Educativo Tecnico Chixot.

Saturday, February 11, 2017 we celebrated the Grand Opening of our campus Centro Educativo Tecnico Chixot in San Juan Comalapa! After 8+ years of building the school with over 400 tons of trash, we open this year with 130 students from Preschool-9th grade. This was a beautiful reunion of our local community, previous staff, volunteers and those who have supported us for years from a far! We joined together to help put the finishing touches on our earthbag classrooms, shared meals, stories and dancing. While we are not quite done with the construction of the full campus, we will be ready to run a full campus in the next school year. As things go down here, we will always be building around Comalapa!

There was a ribbon cutting ceremony, dedication of the buildings and science experiments by our middle school students. Thank you again to everyone that came and shared this momentous occasion with us!!!

We would like to recognize all of our supporters that have been with us, whether since the beginning or only starting to get to know us now. It would be impossible without you! The following are the new names and dedications of the buildings of Tecnico Chixot Education Center. We look forward to your continued support and hope that everyone will stay with us and support in whatever capacity.
