Discover Guatemala While Giving Back

Niños de Guatemala (NDG) has been organizing volunteer experiences since the organization was founded in 2006. We know volunteer trips are life-changing for both the volunteer as well as our school community.

The objective of a Volunteer Trip is to involve enthusiastic volunteers in community-based service projects, and to give volunteers opportunities to learn and work with the communities.

Together, this fosters an experience where both participants and the local community members are exposed to alternative forms of living.
