We first came to Guatemala in 2008 and worked with an organization names From Houses to Homes where we built a total of 9 homes in three years of partnership with them. In 2008 we built three homes on the side of a mountain for three sisters, with the help of a team from the United Kingdom. As you can see, some of the homes that these families live in are made of tin, corn stalks and a dirt floor. It costs $2,100 USD to build a home and 5/6 volunteers who work with two Guatemala workers. It takes 8 working days to complete a home.
