15 Jan Los Jometes
Some of the communities that Hug It Forward has worked with have had makeshift classrooms, some that are falling apart, classes are held outside, or they have no classrooms and just a piece of land. Two teachers named Alex and Edwin reached out to Hug It Forward because they wanted new bottle classrooms built. All that they had available was a plot of land, and the hopes of building 3 new classrooms made of eco-bricks for their middle school students. In the meantime, they are borrowing spaces from the elementary school so that the 3 teachers can teach 300 middle school students. These new bottle classrooms will not only benefit the community of Los Jometes, but also 4 other surrounding communities.
Population (approximately): 300
