Matt Paneitz Executive Director Long Way Home San Juan Comalapa, Guatemala www.lwhome.org Mission: Long Way Home is a non-profit organization which uses sustainable design and materials to construct self-sufficient schools that promote education, employment and environmental stewardship. In support of its mission, LWH’s committed community of volunteers and staff have joined together to design and build a campus in San Juan Comalapa, Guatemala that now provides a vibrant, accessible, and democratic education to over a hundred children, grades K-9. Students attending Técnico Chixot Education Center increase their literacy skills and thus their economic sustainability; they also learn first hand what it means to be an active participant and contributor to a developing democratic society. Additionally, the Center’s students engage in service learning projects that provide opportunities for them to utilize their passions and imaginations as well as problem-solving skills. They work cooperatively, creatively, and resiliently to develop their own minds and hearts in projects that build capacity in their local communities.
