Why Guatemala? Guatemala is among the poorest countries in the western hemisphere. A large percentage of the population consists of native Mayan people who often live in remote and impoverished villages. Guatemala is also affected by poorly developed and under-funded health services, social services, and education infrastructure.
The people of Guatemala are some of the most thankful , appreciative, kind people that I have served. I am in love with the people of Guatemala which is one of the main reasons why I continue taking groups there. I hope you will have the opportunity to be a part of this trip which will make a difference in the lives of many, including your own.
On this trip, we will render service and do a brief tour of important cities and ruins - places such as the ruins of Tikal in Petén and the City of Antigua. While this trip will be an excellent chance for Spanish-speaking students to practice language skills, students who do not speak Spanish are also encouraged to participate.
