From simple acts of helpful kindness to critical improvements in sustainable development, there are many opportunities to make a difference in the lives of the people of many Mayan communities!
Whether you are a professional with specific skills to offer such as teaching, medical, dental, trades or someone willing to offer hands and heart, we have options available to you, such as local construction projects, building latrines, smokless stoves, classrooms or assembling water filter systems.
By doing this we support conservation initiatives for sustainable development in the area. These projects aim to increase income for indigenous people, conserve their cultural heritage and support the long-term health of the picturesque landscapes that the tourism industry relies upon
Contact us and we’ll let you know what’s available.
Participants can experience first hand the daily life and culture of their Mayan hosts by working side by side.
Mission and Community tourism is making positive contributions to the community without leaving a negative impact. Many of this communities are a living example of the benefits that responsible tourism can generate.
Many young people in Mayan communities do not have access to public schooling because their families are unable to purchase uniforms, books and other necessary materials. Access to education was virtually eliminated during the internal Civil conflict and has since been slowly rebuilding.
Because of this, there is a cycle of poverty in many Mayan regions that has been difficult to break. Wild Guatemala through other organizations provides education and training in relevant subjects to prepare students face life with more tools !!
