During the day, Students will be serving in various volunteer opportunities at Colonia Infantil, a malnutrition center in San Juan, to help meet the needs of children suffering from malnutrition. In addition to spending time helping and playing with the kids, there will also be gardening, maintenance, light construction, and organizational projects around the community that students can assist with. There's something for everyone! The Center currently has around 40 children in its care ranging from newborn to 10 years of age. The children in the care of the Center are not true orphans. All of the children have families – their families are simply unable to provide a sufficient amount of food for their children.
For more information about what we'll be doing, download the One More Child Guatemala Manual to learn more about where you'll be serving (& what to pack!).
