08 May Panatzan
In the Mayan language of Kaqchikel, Panatzan means “place of salt”, known for their salt water springs. It is located 11 miles from the center of the municipality, San Martín Jilotepeque. Panatzan is a 100% indigenous community, with 15% of the population that can speak Kaqchikel. This town has 100 families, with 75 of their children enrolled in the elementary school. Many of these children enjoy playing soccer on the field, but the community is in need of more classrooms; one of their classes are being held in the kitchen. With two new bottle classrooms, this project will benefit the students and teachers with sufficient space for a better learning environment.
