About San Vicente
San Vicente Los Cimientos is a beautiful village located in southern Guatemala, To reach the village, our local partner Amigos de la Aldea had to drive for two hours over rough dirt roads in 4×4 vehicles and cross four rivers. People in the village were excited when we arrived because no one in the village had electricity. They had been using candles for light and were unable to charge their cell phones without making the difficult journey to the nearest town. See the Report tab for more information on the impact we were able to make together in San Vicente!
Voice of the Village
“I’m in the 4th grade and I love learning math. I used to use candles to do my homework at night since we don’t have electricity. I’m excited to have a solar lamp now since it won’t hurt my eyes like the candles did! Thank you for your help!”
