Donate Now to Guatemala Project

A Guatemalan school teacher shares a lesson despite the school having no electricity.

There is still time to donate funds to send water filters to families and packs of goodies to children in a rural, central Guatemalan village. The water filters and backpacks will be distributed by lineworkers from electric co-ops in Colorado and Oklahoma.

The lineworkers, working with NRECA International, the philanthropic arm of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, will build an electric system for the small village of La Montanita de la Virgen about three hours northeast of Guatemala City. The system will provide lights and power to 72 homes, a school, a church and a health center.

Individuals, co-ops and other organizations are invited to support the team with monetary donations. For only $35, you can provide a water filter or a backpack filled with kid-friendly items for those in this small village.

Visit to donate to the project via PayPal. Or send a check made out to CEEI (CREA’s nonprofit entity), 5400 Washington St., Denver, CO 80216. Please mention Guatemala on the memo line of the check.

Join CREA and these lineworkers in bringing light to a Guatemalan village.
