Job Description:

Volunteer with a small women's project at Lake Atitlan, helping to achieve economic independence and stability through a variety of activities, such as a comedor (kitchen), textiles cooperative, literacy projects (for the kids), computer center, and nutrition initiatives. The project has a proven history of success with hard work and innovation. Skills in health and nutrition, education, business management, accounting, cooking, computers and training, or just a big, open heart with a love to help are all very valuable and helpful! Knowledge of Spanish is very helpful to communicate with project staff, but not absolutely necessary. There is no minimum time commitment, although at least two weeks would be recommended. Because of the project's small size and budget, accommodation can't be offered but lunches each day are provided.

Through the partnership with Buena Onda, all logistics can be arranged within your budget. Travel in-country, accommodation, any special needs or requirements, Spanish classes, and all support before and during your time in Guatemala are all organized with your input and quick, honest, and personal attention from Buena Onda. Get in touch to learn more about how you can contribute to a stronger, more just future for Guatemala, with peace of mind knowing what lies ahead!
