We can hardly believe it’s been a year since we signed the deed to our new home base in Guatemala. We have our generous benefactor to thank for the initial purchase—but you all have really stepped up, too! Our benefactor left us the challenge of raising additional funds toward the full cost of the renovation and move-in, and by the end of this year, we will have received $149,850 for this purpose!
The best part is—you can literally see the changes all this support has brought about. The grounds of our Education Center are no longer a construction site underway, but a campus taking shape as construction debris is being cleared.
We’ve been hard at work on:
- Installing interior doors
- Selecting conference room tables
- Negotiating better prices on equipment for the computer lab by purchasing in conjunction with all of the CoEd Computer Centers renewing their equipment this year
- Partnering with an interior designer to make sure we get a space that’s both fun and functional to last us for the long haul
Here’s a teaser of the types of activities we’ll be able to bring on-site, all thanks to our new campus:
As the move-in draws closer, we’re getting more and more excited about the possibilities for our future. AND we can’t wait to celebrate it with all of you! The inauguration activities are set for 2017 during our February tours, so reserve your spot today. We hope to see you all then!
Congratulations. What is the location of the new center. I may have missed in my reading.
Hi, John. The center is in San Lucas, Sacatepéquez, right by a bus stop on the Panamerican Highway. The location is perfect for our Guatemalan staff members who commute, and will be convenient for teachers who come by for training as well! We are so excited about it. Hope to see you on February tours when we celebrate the inauguration!
Congrats, you’ve come a long way – place looks great – can’t wait to see it in February.
Thanks, Rich! We look forward to celebrating with you.
