Community of Guadalupe Victoria Elementary School
Guadalupe Victoria Elementary School, located in the Vicente Guerrero neighborhood in Villacorzo Chiapas, was hit hard by an earthquake on September 7, 2017.
The walls suffered severe structural failures, which forced the complete eviction of the building. With the help of parents and teachers, small temporary classrooms were built for the continuity of classes.
