I would like to learn more

I had an amazing experience with Niños de Guatemala. Really, a life changing one. Not exaggerating. The people I worked with, the organization itself, the accommodation, the school, the kids, just everything. It opened my heart. Definitely recommend this one!!!

I had the best time volunteering with NDG! Everyone was great, dedicated and motivated to help and made sure that the time and donations reach those who need it the most: the kids! The organization makes a big difference in the kids’ lives and I was really happy to be a part of it!

I have had the pleasure to volunteer many months with NDG both in their Antigua offices and their Ciudad Vieja school. It is a team of passionate, dedicated and hardworking individuals who successfully provide a lasting educational impact to hundreds of children and teens, and by extension, stability to their families. The organization is growing and I can’t wait to see the advances they make in their second decade, both for the communities they operate in and for themselves as they evolve from start-up to scale-up mode as an organization. Congratulations!
