Rebuild Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Facilities in Guatemala!

Our Program

In November of 2020, Hurricane Eta and Hurricane Ida swept through Guatemala and the surrounding regions leaving a trail of damaged homes, schools, and other essential infrastructure.

Using a volunteer-powered model, All Hands and Hearts constructed a community center, rainwater catchment and storage stations for the communities of Sesajal and Seraxqen in phase one of our recovery efforts in Guatemala.

Our second phase involves building rainwater collection and storage systems, the construction of bathrooms or latrines and a handwashing station, and improving the drainage system for 9 different schools. Our trained staff will teach you everything you need to know! No prior experience is required! All participants must be fully vaccinated to participate.

Apply now to join one of our cohorts! We are offering three one-month commitments between:

January 24 to February 22, 2022

February 28 to March 29, 2022

April 3 to May 3, 2022
