Second PoP School Update
We are please to announce that our second Pencils of Promise school located in the Cantón San José community within the Boca Costa region of Guatemala is near completion! They began preparing for the build back in March of 2020, however, due to Covid-19, there were many delays with personnel and materials. Fortunately, they were able to break ground in April of 2021 and are in the home stretch of construction. Below are some progress photos from PoP!
