Review for Friends Of Constru Casa Usa, Crete, NE, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For almost 10 years now I volunteer for Constru Casa. I first met Carolina around 2002 when I was on sabbatical in Guatemala to study Spanish. Since than I've visited Guatamala about 10 times. I was a volunteer in the office in Guatemala, went on honeymoon to Guatemala and we volunteered and donated a house with my husband. We came back in 2012 and took his children to volunteer at Constru Casa Site (18 year and older). I learn so much from the Guatemalan people and it's an inspiring place to work and meet the local people. An unforgetable and for me lilfechanging experience! Because of the experience in Guatemala I changed my job 10 years ago from commercial company to non profit organisation (and now I am stimulating corporate volunteering). I learned so much and it's relativating my life in Holland. The organization is very professional and I see the donated money comes right where it should come. I can recommand Constru Casa. Right now I am a (volunteer) boardmember of Constru Casa Holland.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

wish they had more support from the Guatemalan government...
