Join us in Guatemala

Childcare Project

Join us for a unique and once in a lifetime experience.

Situated within the colonial Spanish capital of city of La Antigua, the streets lined with picturesque Spanish architecture full of rich history, while overlooking Volcan de Fuego ("volcano of fire") - one of the Seven Volcanic Wonders of the World.

While a beautiful culture with stunning surroundings, there are a range of community centres and orphanages that are poorly resourced and in need of attention. Many children at these centres are affected by a poor lifestyle at home with little or no education.

Our partner works alongside the centres in these impoverished communities to ensure the basic needs are met for the children and that they are being given the much needed love and attention through assigning incoming volunteers to projects depending on the need at the time.

Without the help of volunteers like you, these children may not receive the basic needs to empower them for a brighter future.

Program costs: $250 application fee + $495 per week (1-4 weeks), and $200 per week after this. This includes accommodation, meals, coordination, supervision, training, airport pick up.

Your role is central to the project as you will be working alongside local staff to improve the educational, emotional and hygiene conditions of the children. This project is hands on as you work directly with the children and take initiative to ensure the children's basic needs are being met.
