Come help our new developing project in San Juan La Laguna. In this little indigenous village, home to one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, there seems to be only one issue brought to our attention... free clean drinking water for the locals! Family's are drinking this water containing parasites and other harmful bacterium and the young children consuming this water are more at risk than the adults as over many years their bodies have adjusted to this harm however people are still getting sick everyday. This is why we have recently created a project that involves building Bio water filter. Ceramic Colloidal Silver filters. To give to local families who can not afford safe drinking water, to break the cycle. You will learn the entire process to building these Bio Filters. We are a Non Profit group of people and our goal is to collect donations internationally to support the materials needed for the project. We are just establishing everything now and are in the very beginnin... more inside

Up in the cornfields of Pachaj in Cantel (10km out of Quetzaltenango), Armando has created an inspiring project to combat environmental degradation and stand up for indigenous rights. The Chico Mendes Reforestation Project (El Proyecto de Reforestación Chico Mendes) is a community-run initiative that provides an awesome opportunity to work in solidarity in a rural village while living with a local family and learning about environmental issues.

Chico Mendes is a non-profit organization; all proceeds from Spanish/K'iche' classes, volunteers, and treks go directly back into maintaining the project. Individuals or groups can come and stay at the project for a minimum of five days, although many stay for a few weeks or even months. Every volunteer lives with a local family and is provided 3 meals per day and a private bedroom for Q100. Please contact Armando for more information about group trips.

Normally for the greater part of the morning hours, volunteers collect seeds and fer... more inside

We're living in a finca in the Guatemalan countryside. Our little primary school was founded on the property in order to promote education at the very local level, enabling the kids of the surrounding indigenous communities to access primary education. We have one local teacher working at the school and we try to have always 2 volunteers helping him. There are 30 kids from 6 to 13.
The volunteers should speak and write Spanish accurately as they'll be asked to teach the basic disciplines in Spanish.
The school year begins in January and ends in October. Usually the volunteers stay half a year, from January to late May o from June to October. But it's also possible to stay for a shorter period if we have vacant posts.
The place is really beautiful, it is located in the Polochic's valley at the foot of a mountain. Lake Izabal is 55 km from the finca, and Livingston and the Caribbean coast about 120 km.
