Fondo Unido de Guatemala creates a New Beginning

Fondo Unido de Guatemala creates a New Beginning

On May 12, 2011, Fondo Unido de Guatemala, constructed a new school in the community of Bello Amanecer, Guatemala. As part of their commitment to the development of communities called Voluntariado Gerencial, Fondo Unido united 300 community volunteers including employees from Proctor and Gamble, volunteers from Iniciativa T, Inforum, Pepsico, Telofonica, and Sanofi Aventis. This day of volunteering also included food, dance, and much interaction with the school children.

With the help of the community at large and Aulas para Nuestra Comunidad, Fondo Unido was able to build three school houses, a play ground, a kitchen, and planted 185 trees. The new school, Nuevo Amanecer, will be providing an education for 300, very grateful, community children. This effort in hope will provide a all the community school children with a quality education in order to provide the opportunity for a better future.
