Guatemala Update: Volunteering with Vamos Adelante

Today the group completed its second day of volunteering with Vamos Adelante. We successfully painted two new classrooms at a school for children with learning disabilities. The bright colors of the new classrooms had everyone smiling!

We also worked in a medical clinic in Zapote in the morning helping to count and distribute children’s vitamins and then joined Vamos Adelante’s Director, Nina, on house visits to the elderly. The group did a great job (even thought it was close to 90 degrees!) and fell in love with the children in the villages.

One student in the group boarded the bus and said “That’s the best thing I have ever done in my life.” Now she is planning her second trip back!

It is easy to fall in love with the Village Experience’s partners around the world. I’ve been working with Nina for over 5 years, and I am excited to strengthen our partnership with her wonderful organization.

Stay tuned for more!
