25 Apr Caliaj (phase II)
The town of Caliaj is located over 80 miles from Guatemala City in the department of Chimaltenango. The first phase of this bottle classroom project was for the construction of 3 classrooms. At the time, many of the students were being taught in classrooms that served more than one grade. Because of the need for more classrooms in Caliaj, we are collaborating with members of this community to construct 3 more bottle classrooms so that the 250 middle school students are able to have a single grade in each classroom, as well as more space for elective classes.
Population (approximately): 250
Construction Started: October 2, 2017
Bottle School: 118
