Immersion Trip to NPH Guatemala
February 22 – 26, 2023
Join us for a five-day 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.
We will have the unique opportunity to stay at the NPH home, allowing us to immerse ourselves in NPH life and culture. While the children are in school, we will help with the daily chores around the property. After a morning of work, we will relax and spend time with the pequeños in the afternoons. Additionally, we 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: NPH USA chaperones will lead and oversee all travelers throughout the duration of the week. All chaperones have been screened and are experienced volunteers.
About NPH Guatemala
Opened in 1996, NPH Guatemala fully supports more than 200 children. Around 70 children live at the home, Casa San Andrés, which is located 90 minutes west of Guatemala City, the nation’s capital. Casa San Andrés has approximately 25 acres of land with a Montessori preschool/ kindergarten, primary and middle schools, vocational workshops, and other facilities.
In order to protect the unvaccinated and vulnerable populations in our care, NPH USA requires that visitors follow all COVID-19 protocols set forth by the hosting NPH home. NPH Guatemala’s requirements include mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations and mask-wearing. These requirements are subject to change at the discretion of NPH Guatemala.
If an adult visitor tests positive for COVID-19 during their visit and is unable to return home as scheduled, an NPH USA staff member will remain at the home with them to help coordinate their return. If a minor visitor tests positive for COVID-19 during their visit and is unable to return home as scheduled, an NPH USA staff member AND the minor’s guardian or chaperone must stay with the minor until they can return home.
