CU Denver School of Architecture & Design in Pasmata
The CU Denver School of Architecture & Design will send a group of 15-20 students to Jalapa to work with the community of Pasmata on a construction project. From December 27th until January 12th, the students and two professors will be constructing a school building for fifth & sixth graders, serving the community of 1,200 people. The students are raising funds for their travel and to cover the cost of the project. To support this project, you can contribute directly to FCP, specifying it’s for the Pasmata school project, or soon there will be a dedicated website to fund the project through CU’s donor site.
The Chusli Water System (2017/18)
Our next project will be to support the community of Chusli with a total renovation of their potable water system, serving 1,200 people. The estimated cost is $12,000 and we will raise those funds with your help. We again have a matching grant from the Gaguine Foundation to support our efforts. All donations are doubled.
