Immersion Trip to NPH Guatemala
April 12 – 18, 2019 St. Paul
“After visiting NPH Guatemala, I now view the world with a different and more grateful perspective. NPH has taught me the value of family, friendship, service, and the importance of God in our lives.”
– Claire Schnorr, SPS alumni
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. 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.
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.
