Sobre nosotros

La historia de Constru Casa

En el transcurso de los años, Constru Casa ha construido nuevas vidas para numerosas familias guatemaltecas y comunidades completas. Nunca hubiéramos llegado a este punto sin el liderazgo sobresaliente y trabajo de nuestra fundadora, Carolina van Heerde. Ella empezó con una idea y una visión de ver a Guatemala sin pobreza y con todas las personas viviendo en una vivienda digna. Desde el 2004 ha trabajado con grupos de personas y asociaciones locales y extranjeros para convertir a Constru Casa en lo que es hoy día. Carolina ha construido relaciones y creado alianzas con personas y organizaciones afines para ver un cambio en la crisis habitacional que es muy obvia en Guatemala. Hemos construido más de 1,400 hogares en combinación con construcciones comunitarias, llevándonos a un total de más de 1,600 proyectos de construcción. Afortunadamente el proceso de construcción no finaliza allí, porque la cantidad de familias que reciben un nuevo inicio con una nueva casa sigue creciendo. ¡Muchas gracias a las personas que nos ayudan a hacer realidad el sueño de Carolina de una nueva Guatemala!

Misión 

Mejorar la calidad de vida de guatemaltecos que viven en pobreza extrema por medio del desarrollo comunitario holístico incluyendo la dotación de vivienda básica, programas de apoyo y construcción comunitaria para programas sanitarios y educacionales.

Visión

Una Guatemala sin pobreza, exclusión y dependencia, en la que las familias pobres ya no tienen que aguantar condiciones de vida inhumanas. Por medio del desarrollo comunitario en las áreas de vivienda, educación y salud, estas familias se vuelven social y económicamente sólidas.
