Our volunteer projects are based in and around the town of San Miguel Duenas, Guatemala, an agricultural town of 12,000 people. Volunteers work to improve the quality of life of the local community through a couple of building initiatives: building homes or community facilities such as a community kitchen or installing eco-stoves. Some volunteers have also helped out with eyeglass clinics. Our long-term goal is to create a sustainable environment for growth within the community.
Upon the completion of the volunteer experience, we recommend volunteers explore the center of Mayan civilization, including its ancient archaeology, rich culture and diverse landscapes.
