The Children’s Village
The Project Somos Children’s Village is being constructed just outside of Tecpán, Guatemala.
The Village will be comprised of seven homes with 7 mothers and 49 children.
There will be buildings for Village activities, guest rooms, art and music workshops, a library, administration space and of course, a large playground and soccer field.
As well as being designed to have an inherent beauty and harmony, the Village will be built to be eco-sustainable with alternative electric generation, rain water capture, grey water recycling, and solar energy.
Permaculture is incorporated into all the design features of the Village and partnering organizations.
All means to be energy self-sufficient will be utilized.
Organic agriculture will also be a part of the Village and will provide food for the families.
The Village will be managed by the Village Director, a local Guatemalan. Local Guatemalans will be employed in other areas as well.
