Vanessa's Volunteer Trip Guatemala

Please help me raise money for this amazing volunteer experience to help children in need in Guatemala!!

I will be going March 29th - April 7th, so time is of the essence!

My name is Vanessa and I am a fifth grade science and geography teacher.  A colleague and I are going to Guatemala with International Volunteer HQ, an organization created to connect volunteers with various destinations and communities, all around the world, in need of assistance! 

In Guatemala, I will be assisting children in need of care. My goal is to help and care for underprivileged children who are affected by poor home life, little to no schooling and alcohol or drug abuse among their families. Volunteers play an important role in working alongside local staff to improve the educational, emotional, and hygiene conditions of the children.

Your donation will help fund my trip to Antigua, Guatemala. The money raised will be used for my expenses on this trip, such as program fees, flight, and items purchased for the children we encounter on our volunteer program. Your donations will make it possible!

Thank you so much for your support!
