Long Way Home’s vision is to break the cycle of poverty through innovative solutions to local challenges. We are currently building a sustainable school out of recycled materials- such as plastic and glass bottles, tires, and other waste - using alternative green building methods.

The Appropriate Technology Collaborative (ATC) designs, develops, demonstrates and distributes appropriate technological solutions to meet basic needs of low income people worldwide. 

Established in 2001, with the support of the Canadian PEDAL organization and the “Guatamalan Heritage Development”, Maya Padal is an NGO which uses recycled bicycle parts to build “bicimáquinas”- human powered bicycle machines.

"Hey! I wanted to share my experience in the project .. I got to teach English at school and because I had a background as a gymnastics trainer I could incorporate it in lessons. The ideas is welcomed on the pogram which gives room for anyone to truly offer what he knews and love best.
At first I was a bit afraid of teaching by myself in the classroom (I do not have a background as a teacher), but I soon realized that there was no reason for that - the children are charming and very eager to learn which makes the whole experience much more enjoyable and satisfying! I felt that even my basic knowledge helped them a lot.
I was staying with a family and it was great! From the first moment I arrived the family did everything to make me feel at home and as comfortable as possible, helped me with any problem or question I needed, and made all this experience even more positive and unforgettable."
