Guatemala and Mayan Families 2019 Volunteer Trip

The team of nine Rotarians and Unity of Santa Barbara members recently returned from a successful 9-day trip to volunteer for NGO Mayan Families. The team was involved in a variety of projects that included building 1 house for a family of 10 in the community of Pena Blanca; constructing 12 fuel efficient stoves, provided 12 water filters; served lunch to over 50 people at two elderly feeding sights; and had arts and crafts projects for two preschools. The budget for all of these projects was $15,390! In addition, over 200 pounds of donated medical, school, and recreational supplies were distributed.

The date of February 29 – March 8, 2020 has been set for the next year’s trip. If you would like to sign-up or would like any further information, please contact Bill Dutton.
