Are you a medical professional or student? Why not try volunteering on IVI's medical programs in Guatemala?! Help local doctors with general check-ups, taking vital signs, preparing materials and equipment & dental check-ups.
Sustainable farming does not come without cost, as local farmers need more people to work in the field to maintain the best production they can. You will be working with local farmers just outside of the city of Antigua, where you learn about eco farming and volunteer on the coffee and macadamia nut farms.
Work at local day-care centres and after school programs, helping understaffed facilities and proving support for the local childcare workers. Help with organising games, teaching sports, English and other subjects, teaching the children on personal hygiene, as well as cleaning and other general duties.
Unfortunately, Guatemala has a significant problem with stray cats and dogs who wander the streets. Work at the shelter and help groom, exercise, and train both the dogs and cats. Assist with bathing, brushing, walking, leading obedience training, cleaning the kennels, medical treatment, spay/neuter programs, education, and fundraising.
