I attended a NON-PROFIT management class and met Matt. There was NO DOUBT he would accomplish his dreams. Very inspiring.

LONG WAY HOME added 13 new photos to the album: Inauguracion Tecnico Chixot — with Kebul Pretta and 5 others.

Saturday, February 11, 2017 we celebrated the Grand Opening of our campus Centro Educativo Tecnico Chixot in San Juan Comalapa! After 8+ years of building the school with over 400 tons of trash, we open this year with 130 students from Preschool-9th grade. This was a beautiful reunion of our local community, previous staff, volunteers and those who have supported us for years from a far! There was a ribbon cutting ceremony, dedication of the buildings and science experiments by our middle school students. Thank you again to everyone that came and shared this momentous occasion with us!!!

Our students pasteurized water using their trash solar ovens they hand made this week! Thanks ReuSol :)

After #pasteurizing our #water the results are clear, literally! Left side has bacteria and right side has none! And to think we did it all out of "trash." The ...#possibilities are #endless when you #think #creatively! Knowledge is power and we have to continue to #educate and #inspire as many people as we can! Thanks Long Way Home and Ashley Kravetsky for being such great hosts and helping with the workshops!
