The community of Patzocón is located in the aldea of El Molino, in the municipality of San Martin Jilotepeque, in the department of Chimaltenango, Guatemala.

The school has 88 students in primary, 16 in pre-primary, and 5 teachers, with only 3 classrooms made of cinder-blocks. Currently the students are having to use one tiny dark classroom made of wood and sheet metal, and another group of students are crammed into the director’s office. Kids are getting sick due to the cramped and unsuitable conditions, which hardly provide the best environment for learning, development and creativity.

The new classrooms will serve for the pre-primary (kindergarten) and for third grade.
