Volunteer at a Mayan school in Guatemala
Location: Poptún, Guatemala
This school is an educational institution that seeks to contribute and influence the formation of leaders in the future, constitute guidance in finding solutions to community problems and the exercise of the rights of Mayan people, in the context of a multicultural and intercultural state.
Our mission is to offer an alternative education based on the worldview of the culture, from the reality of the communities, to the contribution on building a democratic society which is, socially, interculturally and environmentally responsible with its own economic development model and solidarity.
Our students come from the rural areas and stay with us for fifteen days every month, then they return to their villages for another fifteen days in order to support their families, most of them working in agriculture. During this time it is possible to visit the children and their communities, to better understand the background they are coming from.
Volunteeers could help us by doing different tasks as English teacher, arts&music, library, radio project, workshops or the shop.
