Hannah Shier - Testimonial - Long-Term Volunteer 2017
Friday, December 1, 2017 Categories:
I spent three months in Guatemala as a part of my gap year after high school and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I volunteered at the school in Ciudad Vieja with the youngest class, the parvulos.
The kids at the school are incredible, you learn so much from them and they are so eager to share a connection with you. Ninos de Guatemala is a great organization, they are honest and open as to where the money goes. It was important to me to work with an organization that is reputable and gives the money to the cause instead of keeping it for themselves. From my personal experience, the staff and all of the volunteers care a lot about the students and want to do whatever they can to provide a good education for these children whose families can’t afford it.
I truly had the most amazing time with NDG and I highly recommend volunteering with them if you are like me, on your gap year, or if you are just looking for a meaningful way to give back.
