Green Schools Project

Worthy Village partners with local schools on Lake Atitlan who do not have a playground to spread awareness of the importance of recycling.

What We Do

  • We work with local architects to developing a blueprint of the finished product
  • Local workers are hired to create this playground out of all recycled materials
  • Even the games and structures are all created from locally found materials and wastes
  • We inspire the children to create a “green wall” where they plant their own plants alongside the play area giving them reason to take better care of the area
  • We further emphasize the importance of recycling and putting old things to new uses through the distribution of an education handbook on recycling
