by Christian Chorneyko

Exciting News! 

We are thrilled to share that our second school built by Pencils of Promise and funded by Air Plant Shop and YOU, our customers, is almost finished! The school is located in Cantón San José, Guatemala. Preliminary site work began in March of 2020, but with the pandemic restrictions we faced months of personnel and material delays. Luckily, we were able to break ground and the expected completion of our new two room module is expected in the next couple of weeks.
