The Story

Tzununá is a very nice village in the shores of Lake Atitlán. There is a primary,  middle and high school and after that the young people don´t have access to University Education. We are creating this Community Center to create opportunities for Education: scholarships, meeting place to teach different things, workshops, training activities, professional development, reading, library development,  computer skills and music development.

The Community Center building is ready with a roof, we are very happy with this and give a big Thank you to all our supporters!!!. The Library part has a floor, windows and doors.

We still need to raise money to:
Finish the floor in the Computer Lab and Music Academy.
Doors and windows in the Women Cooperative, Music Academy and Computer Lab.
Shelves for the Library
Buy more computers
Musical instruments 
Materials for the trainings and workshops
A proyector for training
Sound system for the trainings

Your donations will make a difference in the Community!!! 
We belive that education is the only way out of poverty!
