This page shows an overview of the travel teams that will be headed to Guatemala and a way to channel donations to the specific groups. The first set of teams are internal — Guatemala Service Projects — and we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have! The second set of teams (OUR Guatemala) are organized through another group but we provide donation collection as a service to them because we mutually support the same organizations!
Guatemala Service Projects
August 3 – 11, 2019
SCOPE: We are conducting a shoes and vitamins drive to benefit all 416 people in the two neighboring villages of Canton Panimache Quinto Bajo and Alto. We are also adding classroom improvements for the elementary school which serves the children of Canton Río Camanibal, providing and serving community meals, training volunteer firefighters on CPR and canalization, conducting home visits for the elderly, installing stoves, water filters and bunk beds, delivering diaper and feminine hygiene kits, and visiting the Nuevo Reto Community Garden. A busy and gratifying week for sure!
