The indigenous Cakchiquel people themselves detected the problem and developed this proposal together with our local partner. That way, a school was build where students and teachers are taught about the environment, personal hygiene and careful use of water recourses.

The school was built in San Lorenzo, Tecpán municipality. It has three classrooms, a sports court, and services for good educational development of children between 6 and 12.
