hey hey you guys. as hinted at yesterday on our facebook, today we're going to share with you an introduction to one of our projects we have been working on lately! we'll be sharing more and more details in the coming weeks so you can join along in the journey :).
we are so excited to finally be getting down to business to share with you a glimpse into what's going on in Ciudad Vieja! as those who have been following us know, we are involved in multiple different projects around Guatemala, all of them having the common thread of development. developing relationships with communities, developing support systems for holistic wellness, and developing avenues for job development to support economic stability and self-sufficiency.
in the next few weeks we'll be sharing updates and video diaries on our project in Ciudad Vieja to explain more! Ciudad Vieja is a small town about an hour away from Guatemala City. It's densely populated, and full of people, and as you can see - surrounded by volcanoes!
this large plot of land is DIRECTLY in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Ciudad Vieja - no need to travel far out of the town! we have partnered with a local christian business man who wants to use the land to help support the community with jobs, wellness, and training programs. match made in heaven!
we already have a small team and are so excited to put our hands to work, using this land to support hope and life here in Ciudad Vieja.
we have big plans and we're busy prepping and clearing the land for what's coming next... here are a few pictures below so you and the land can get to know each other a bit :). stay tuned as we share glimpses and details of what's coming up next for the land!
