2024 Project Story: Chile Patagonia

In 2023, Chile stands as one of South America’s rapidly developing nations, yet the persistent challenge of growing wealth inequality continues to cast a shadow. The COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated this divide, particularly when education shifted online, revealing a stark digital divide in many lower-income households. While some marginalized communities have been valiantly striving to bridge the educational gap left by the pandemic, they often lack the necessary resources and capacity to fully address the issue.

This summer, HXP Builders step in to make a significant impact by constructing additional classrooms for a local community. These new classroom spaces not only provide much-needed room for students, but they also contribute to maintaining safety standards in a region where many buildings are at risk of deterioration. A total of 124 families and 26 workers will directly benefit from this space, fostering an environment of learning and growth.
