Let's SOL - Arise Guatemala
Thank you for investing in renewable energy sources for the villagers of Guatemala! Though this campaign is complete, you can still join the team and make a difference by contributing here: http://asufoundation.org/ISD. A brighter perspective
Imagine waking up with little or no electricity. Imagine not having the resources to change that. Our goal is to minimize these challenges for the village of Vuelta Grande, Guatemala.
To eliminate the disparity in living conditions of the villagers of Vuelta Grande by providing renewable energy sources and practices. We wish to create lasting relationships that will allow for continued service to this region for years to come. Through this hands on-experience we will absorb cultural differences through close interaction with community leaders while providing advice and creating life long relationships that will contribution to the growth of the leadership skills of our members.
A little about us
We are a growing group of Arizona State University students striving to build global relationships through community service to regions in needs. We want to enable students to transform society and the quality of life in both our communities and those we visit outside the United States. Through cultural immersion and a willingness to lend a helping hand we believe our members gain lifetime experiences to grow in both their academic and professional development.
As a newly formed organization we had our first successful international service trip to Providencia, Costa Rica last year, implementing a sustainable coffee farm. Through the determination, spirit, and dedication of our motivated members we were able to eclipse any past group volunteer experiences the locals had experienced. We were able to break down cultural barriers and became part of the village family very quickly resulting in deep connections with our host families. With your help this is the type of energy and commitment we would like to bring to future communities in Guatemala. Please join us in spreading our cause and lending a helping hand.
