If you have only little of time and would like to volunteer in one of our projects for a week or so, you could help building energy efficient stoves in the villages around Xela for instance.
For longer-term volunteer positions, we can organize opportunities in child care centers, womens’ shelters, schools (teaching English) and other selected development programs.
If you don't have the time to volunteer or want to help in a different way, we are more than happy about donations which are used for local libraries in primary and secondary schools or for our scholarship program.
El Quetzal can link you to a vast amount of volunteer opportunities in Quetzaltenango and the surrounding communities. Feel free to ask if you are interested.
