Chuquexa I School Bathroom Project - GuatemalaLocation
Chuquexa II School, Sololá, Guatemala

Community Description
The Chuquexa II School is located on the Inter-American highway between Chupol and Las Trampas. The school is divided into two locations, about 100 meters apart.

The combined population is 745 students and 25 teachers, in a village of 4,200 inhabitants.

Problem Addressed
The lower school has sufficient water, but the upper school has less water because of the height of the school in the water system. The bathrooms are in need of renovation.

Project Description
A well will be dug at the school. The bathroom will be renovated and fixtures repaired and replaced as needed.

It is anticipated that water will be reached at 35 meters. An electric pump will be placed on the well, and above-ground improvements made.

Project Impact
770 people will benefit from the project.
