How can we help YOU??
Social enterprise cetc
Financial sustainability is a crucial part to any non-profit. We are developing a social enterprise that allows us to help you, and you to help our cause.
LWH can offer many services - Green Construction Designs, Construction, Labor, NGO Management assistance, general advice, or our school model as a whole! Our solutions are not only beneficial to Comalapa, but truly can be for any community around the globe.
what have we done so far??
In 2016, with partners, Natural Building Collective, we helped build Delft Early Childhood Development Center in South Africa. With LWH assistance, they have recently petitioned the government to accept tires as an official construction material and will begin to replace shack housing in Capetown, South Africa.
Santa Eulalia, Guatemala - Long Way Home assisted Miracles in Action with tire retaining walls for their classrooms in the highlands.
Partnering with Earthship Biotecture, we were able to build two Earthship homes for families within the community of San Juan Comalapa. First in 2011, Maria, weaver and single mother of 6 (pictured right), received this beautiful sustainable home. In 2013, Romeo, LWH construction foreman, his wife and son (pictured right-below), are thrilled to represent this type of green construction as their new lifestyle.
