    FAITH STATEMENT

    BuildinGUATE is an interdenominational, non-profit, Christian Organization committed to serving people in need in Guatemala. However, our ServiceGROUPS come from a wide variety of faith, traditions and practices. Since we respect each others beliefs, traditions and practices we welcome groups from all faiths and would love to have your groups join with us as we work to help the poor.

    MISSION

    BuildinGUATE will provide technical, organizational and administrative assistance directed toward improving the social development of Guatemalans that lack economic means. This support includes but is not limited to; construction of better housing for families, access to educational and health based services and additional support through collection of monetary donations, in-kind donations and distributing them to meet the basic necessities of life as well as love and dignity.

    VISION
    Promote the well-being of Guatemalan families through promoting the construction of housing, create educational development and learning for children under the age of limited resources and provide medical care and trained professional staff to children, women and men to develop Guatemalan society with improved quality of life.

  • The GarbageDUMP Project

    BuildinGUATE is committed to bring a SoupKITCHEN every week providing a healthy meal, educational activities with the children and medical assistance. We also have food and clothing distributions.

    The people living at the dump are in precarious conditions having their homes built out of trash and they all work sifting through the garbage collecting recyclable items earning pennies a day.

    They are desperate for help, please consider to support us by making a donation. Every penny counts!

    Adopt-a-Day at the SoupKITCHEN provides a way for you to sponsor over 150 meals per day for the kids and activities that brighten their day.

    - Sponsor a meal and activities: $200
    - Sponsor 2 meals one each week: $400
    - Sponsor 3 meals one each week: $600
    - Sponsor 4 meals one each week for a month: $800

  • The DayCARE Project

    The DayCare Virgen de la Esperanza serves kids and parents in the community of Pastores Sacatepequez. Provides care and nurture for impoverished children helping them be healthy, smart and strong.

    Over 60 children attend daily the DayCARE, throughout the day we provide education and healthy meals in a safe enviroment. The hours are 6am to 6pm Monday trhough Friday, giving the parents the opportunity to work and must importantly keeping the kids out of the streets.

    The DayCARE runs with some help from the city but most of their needs are cover through donations.











  • The BuildinGUATE HOMES Project

    Get involved by donating a house for the poorest of the poor and help us fight poverty one family at a time. We believe by building a safe and secure home is the first step of getting the family out of poverty, not only they will get a house but also they will be part of our donation program in which we provide every family Education, Health assistance, veggies and must importantly Dignity.

    Every house we build comes with title floors, electricity connections with 3 light bulbs (if available), gutters for the RainWATER Collection System and a water filter.

    For more information please contact us at info@buildinguate.org











  • The ServiceGROUPS Experience

    The ServiceGROUP Experience provides a chance for you to changes lives through a meaningful, volunteer-centered program. Your trip will focus on performing practical projects, such as building simple homes, distributing clothing in remote villages, serving meals to people who live in the garbage dump and bringing smiles to the faces of countless children not only at the DayCARE but also everywhere we visit.

    Construction experience and/or Spanish language skills ARE NOT necessary to enjoy the ServiceGROUP Experience-although a willingness to get dirty and stretch outside of your comfort zone is!

    For travelers interested in gaining a realistic sense of life in Guatemala, the ServiceGROUP Experience is right for you. ServiceGROUP members gain intimate access into the homes of both their middle-class host families and the impoverished family they will be building a home for.
