The New Hogar Abierto - it´s getting built!

Work continues on Casa Perry Hovde, the building that will be the Hogar Abierto´s new, enlarged and permanent home. Habitat for Humanity are hard work in improving the ground floor as well as adding a brand new second floor. 
The second floor - it´s aliiive!

While the current Quetzaltrekkers guides
continue to trek their hearts out in an effort to not only cover the day-to-day costs of EDELAC, but be able to contribute a sizeable chunk of the construction costs, there has been a fantastic wave of donations since word spread around the internet and real world of the reality of the Hogar Abierto Expansion Project.

The view from what will be the Sala Educativa

So far around $3500 has been donated, a truly amazing amount. If you are reading this as a donor, a massive thank you on behalf of everyone from EDELAC, but especially from the children of the Hogar Abierto.

This rather fantastic amount will relieve some of the pressure on EDELAC and QT, but we are still hoping to raise more! If you are reading this and are interested in making a donation, you can do so through Omprakash. If you would like to know more about the project before making a donation, please do not hesitate to contact QT for further information and for the latest updates.

Any money donated will be used to make the third payment to Habitat in March, thus these donations are for a real, happening project and not some future dream.

Donate now and know your donation will make a real difference!
