This project has helped the people of Sepox I, Chisec, Alta Verapaz, Guatemala see their dreams of a new, fully functional school come to fruition. The two classrooms are to accommodate 40 students and the community members were very excited to work with Hug It Forward to make this happen.

This project was overseen by Marcos Xe, who was the community leader in charge of the bottle school in the nearby community of Sepalau, Hug It Forward’s second bottle school project. We’re excited to see how Marcos has been inspired by the bottle school technology, and how he has been empowered to go forth and help another community with their own needs for educational infrastructure.
