PROJECT: COMMUNITY-LED INITIATIVE TO REDUCE GLOBAL POVERTY
Limited to 30 expeditioners:
The picturesque nation of Guatemala bridges Mexico with all other Central American countries. While quaint in geographical size, the native people radiate a happiness that is larger than life. CHOICE expeditions focus on the indigenous Q'eqchi' communities of the pleasant Polochic region, amidst the breathtaking cloud forest of the Alta Verapaz state.
Enjoy an incredible opportunity to learn about rural Guatemalan culture while also experiencing international development and humanitarian work firsthand. Along with your fellow expeditioners...
