    Description

    Tzununá is beautiful and small village in the shores of Lake Atitlán, Guatemala.

    Some years ago we created this idea of a Community Center that would be like a big project to work on many different levels: library, music center, computer space and a place for the women of town to sell the beautiful things they do and to support the young people of Tzununá with workshops and alternatives to help with work opportunities and studies. Developing education in Tzununá, promoting reading, doing crafts with children. We are organizing painting classes, cooking classes, english and all other classes that could support the children and young people in their path to learning jobs and empowering them to earn incomes.

    There is a primary school and a middle school but after that the young people don´t have access to education; to go to High School or University.

    What we want to have is a great place to grow as a community integrating people from the village and the volunteers.

    We need the help of people to do what we cannot find in the Community. So no volunteers will be taking jobs that the people from Tzununá could do.

    We are ONLY looking for help in FUNDRAISING for know
