View Project Proposal

In 2012, Mirna Martinez opened her house to up to a handful of young students who were too young to walk to a school in a neighbouring village.
It quickly filled up and parents wound up having to build a temporary school structure at the front of Mirna’s property.

The school grew too big for Mirna’s property, so she graciously donated a parcel of land for another larger temporary structure to be built.

The temporary structure was built out of metal and wood and has a dirt floor. If there are heavy rains the floors become a muddy mess. The community is growing and it is anticipated that enrollment will continue to increase in the years to come. The parents are willing, ready and able to volunteer and to provide support to our construction team

We worked with the SchoolBOX team and community volunteers to build this amazing school in memory of Brett for this deserving community!
