Volunteering in Guatemala

       I will be going to Guatemala to serve in an orphanage alongside 20 other volunteers that have chosen to work with the IVHQ (International Volunteer Headquarters) Program. I plan to leave the country for four weeks in November. I will be working to provide individual attention and assistance to children that come from less fortunate homes and communities. I'm so excited to be given the privilege to work with local staff to improve the educational and emotional state of the children.

     The cost of $1,500 will cover all of my expenses including my round trip flight. I will be staying with two other volunteers at a host family's home where they will accommodate us with meals and a comfortable environment. This cost will also cover program supervision, in country 24/7 volunteer support, my orientation for the trip, as well as some spanish lessons offered by IVHQ so that I am able to communicate to my best ability with the children. The deadline for donations is October 15th and any amount that you can contribute is greatly appreciated. 
        I have spoken with many volunteers from the program already and they have nothing but wonderful things to say. I am expecting this trip to be the experience of a life time. I have always had a passion for helping others and I feel that this specific trip to Guatemala will be an amazing opportunity for me to make a difference in the lives of these children.
       Thank you for helping my dream become a reality.
                        Sincerely, 
                        Rachel Polley
