Building Homes for Poor Families of Guatemala

 

 

Since my last blog post back in 2008 about the Guatemalan organization, FromHousestoHomes.org that makes houses for poor families of Guatemala, I  signed up to go to Guatemala this summer (2011) with the non-profit, to pitch in and build a cinder block houses.

From July 28th to August 7th, a group of 5 from my church, which includes my friend Dave who was in the video on the older post, and his two oldest kids along with my step-daughter and I, will be building  a cinder block house for a family that previously had  a corn stalk house.Guatemalan Corn Stalk House

Corn stalk houses vs Cinder Block Houses

Corn stalk houses are not very secure and can be easily destroyed by the tropical weather. The cinder block houses can not be easily destroyed, and have a tin roof that keeps out mother nature.
The corn stalk houses also are easily broken into by animals and other unwanted guests. The cinder block houses have doors and windows that can be secured. Additionally, each house is equipped with bunk beds, a stove, and some shelves.
