Case Studies

Jane, a trained nutritionist, used her skills to help local communities in rural Guatemala. She tells her story: from monitoring and weighing babies to setting up personal hygiene workshops, and making lasting connections.

Kat, a finance analyst from London, volunteered at the charity AsociaciĆ³n Fatima helping to set up after-school activities for disadvantaged children. The experience also helped her to improve her Spanish.

Dani was placed with a co-operative community of families of former guerilla fighers who now grow and market organic coffee. Dani learnt coffee harvesting techniques as well as helping the co-operative develop agritourism.

Karl, an Associate Chartered Accountant (ACA), was looking for new experiences. In his placement, he worked closely with the directors of charity, Asociacion Fatima, to improve their financial management skills and build the charity's capacity.
