Guatemala offers an exclusive opportunity for teams of varying degrees of construction skills to participate in projects throughout the nation. These teams build homes for villagers in the span of just a few days. These projects are exceedingly efficient in providing those who are without shelter with sturdy homes that last for long periods of time. The cost of construction including materials is around one thousand dollars. Gathering a team and completing multiple homes in one week is more than feasible! If you are compassionate for those who are living in poverty, then this opportunity is perfect for you. Whether your team consists of youthful souls, twenty somethings, office comrades, or a band of handymen this project presents you with a chance to dramatically effect and love families in Guatemala through provision. In addition, teams can visit the Mayan ruins at Tikal, the historic city of Antigua, or one of many other incredible spots throughout Guatemala.
We offer both construction and adventure trips to Guatemala. Construction teams will be working on blitz building houses, while the adventure teams will be traveling all around Guatemala doing ministry along the way.
