Guatemala Landscape

Guatemala

Called the land of eternal spring, this lush Central American county is rich in history with a mixture of Mayan and Spanish indigenous people. FHe expeditioners will travel to a cluster of villages in the Senahu community, nestled in the beautiful mountains of the Polochic Region.

Each expedition includes at least one village-driven building project in which everyone is welcome to participate. The project is generally a school, clinic, or water system and is directed by local masons and foremen using local materials. Other areas of focus include training programs centered around business development, education, and healthcare. We strive to adapt each training to the individual needs of each community.

FHe participants will work side-by-side with villagers throughout the day enjoying cultural events in the process. Camp-like accommodations with running water, electricity, cold showers, and common eating areas are anticipated.
