Casa Guatemala

Guatemala

Guatemala is the most populous country in Central America, where income distribution remains very unequal. More than half of the population lives below the national poverty line and 23% of them live in extreme poverty. Unfortunately, this leaves nearly half of Guatemalan children under the age of five chronically malnourished, one of the highest rates of malnutrition in the world.

Erweiterung Casa Guatemala

Das Casa Guatemala vergrößert sich und wir sind wieder dabei - Jetzt ist der Bau eines zusätzlichen Hauses geplant, um noch mehr Waisen und Straßenkinder aufzunehmen und zu betreuen.

Wir wollen auch hier wieder den Strom durch Solardachanlagen und Gelspeicherbatterien für das neue Haus sichern – Unterstützen Sie uns dabei.

The project

Casa Guatemala has been an isolated children's village for 30 years, caring for up to 300 of Guatemala's most vulnerable and marginalized children at any given time. During its existence, Casa Guatemala has provided a home, education and medical care to thousands of orphaned, abandoned and abused children placed into its care by the Department of Child Welfare, as well as children from over 30 remote and rural villages, often living in extreme poverty supply required.
Due to the remoteness of the location in Las Brisas, Rio Dulce, Casa Guatemala has never had access to electricity other than what they could generate themselves. With the help of donors, diesel generators could be purchased, which make it possible to generate light for about eight hours a day and to pump water from the well into the water tanks and buildings. The cost of running the generator on this limited basis is over $100 per day. After 8:30 p.m. there is no cooling and no light for the children.
We wanted to change that and give the little ones 24/7 access to clean, sustainable energy.
  We switched the power source from diesel generators to solar panels, helping Casa Guatemala get closer to their goal of becoming self-sufficient. The large savings in fuel costs allowed the organization to use the funds for other aspects of the project, such as: B. Separate housing for the boys and girls, a primary school, a medical clinic, a library, their farm and many other interesting and useful things for the little ones. Power one for one is forever grateful to everyone who contributed to this project and to all our kind sponsors who made it all possible.
