South Shore Immersion Trip to NPH Guatemala
June 17 – 23, 2019
Join us for an immersion trip to our NPH home in Guatemala. Experience firsthand how NPH USA transforms the lives of children! You will meet the amazing children, staff, and volunteers of NPH and learn about their daily lives. Whether you are new to NPH, or a longtime supporter, visiting our homes is the best way to see what we do in action.
We will have the unique opportunity to stay at the NPH home with the children, in a visitor’s house. This will allow us to immerse ourselves in NPH life with the children. While the children are in school, you will help out around the home (helping with daily chores around the property, working in the gardens and farm, caring for the babies, working in the kitchen, and viewing the school, etc.). Relax or hang out with the pequeños in the evenings and afternoons – play a soccer game, plan a group activity, help with homework, and join them for dinner. You will also have the opportunity to tour the NPH facilities and meet with the leadership of NPH Guatemala, as well as other NPH staff, volunteers, and older pequeños.
Opened in 1996, NPH Guatemala is home to approximately 100 children. The home, Casa San Andres, is located 90 minutes west of Guatemala City, the nation’s capital. It is situated 5,800 feet above sea level in Guatemala’s beautiful central highlands, very close to the famous colonial capital of Antigua. Casa San Andres has approximately 25 acres of land with a Montessori preschool/ kindergarten, primary and middle schools, vocational workshops, clinic, athletic fields, a farm and greenhouses.
