Immersion Trip to NPH Guatemala
February 17 – 22, 2020 Duxbury High
Join us for a one-week 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 an NPH home is the best way to see your impact in action.
We will have the unique opportunity to stay at the NPH home. This will allow us to immerse ourselves in NPH life and culture. While the children are in school, you will help with the daily chores around the property, such as; working in the gardens and farm, assisting professional special needs caregivers, working in the kitchen and carpentry shop, and other jobs assigned by the home. After a morning of work, relax and spend time with the pequeños in the afternoons. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to meet with the leadership of the NPH home, tour the home’s facilities, and hear from the children about their experience living at NPH.
Note: An NPH USA chaperone will lead and oversee all travelers throughout the duration of the week. All chaperones are background checked, and are experienced volunteers.
