The bottle school in Patzocón is taking shape! The frame of the school is complete, with all the columns and beams in place. Not only are community members looking forward to placing bottles in the walls, they have an exciting visit to look forward to.
On November 22nd, Hug It Forward is hosting a two-day bottle school workshop in Patzocón and San Martin Jilotepeque. Several community organizations from around Guatemala are visiting San Martin in order to learn about bottle schools, with the intention of building a bottle school in their own community.
We are proud to be partnering with Miracles in Action on this workshop, an organization that has facilitated the building of many schools in Guatemala and who is now looking to use more eco-friendly and conscious building methods.
