Happy New Year - Itzapa gets a makeover - Guatemala

Happy New Year to you all - here's hoping 2009 will be another great year for Phoenix, in all the countries in which we work. As is custom, after a couple of days recovery from Christmas, the volunteers got back to work in Itzapa.

Due to the conditions in which we work, and the quality of paint, we have to repaint each year, so the volunteers donned their painting clothes, tooled up with rollers, brushes and some interesting smelling paint, and got to work.

We are also building a new classroom, to pack in the new kids we have taken in, and to finally get Acatenango out of the cupboard, so the brushes will have to come out again soon.

Thanks to all the vols for getting stuck in over the festive period, the school looks great for the restart on 5th January.

The following film was made in Guatemala, though the message is the same across all GVI Phoenix projects
