Why Volunteer in Guatemala
Join a volunteer placement abroad in Guatemala and experience a country of immense beauty, from soaring volcanoes to ancient Mayan ruins.
However, poverty is widespread, and we connect volunteers with an organisation dedicated to the development of Guatemala. Volunteer any time of the year with 25 x Spanish lessons included.
Types of Volunteer Projects
Volunteer at our partner charity, Asociación Fatima and make a difference to the lives of local Guatemalans. The charity helps more than 250 families in the Quetzaltenango region, vulnerable to malnutrition and a lack of education. Work side-by-side with them in the areas of:
Medical & Healthcare Placements
Provide direct patient care including disease screening, medical procedures and nutritional advice. Asociación Fatima has it's own patient screening rooms and dentist surgery. Volunteers with all types of backgrounds are welcome from nutritionists to dentists, doctors, nurses and project managers.
Teaching & Education Placements
The charity provides opportunities to teach any age range from teaching English to young children to setting up workshops for local communities. Past volunteers have helped set up cookery, sports, nutrition, human rights and business mentoring workshops.
