ARE YOU ADVENTUROUS, COMMITTED TO SOCIAL JUSTICE, AND INTERESTED IN A TRIP OF A LIFETIME THAT WILL TAKE YOU OFF THE BEATEN TRACK?
Then sign up for our Experience Guatemala Challenge and help us raise funds for our schools! Not only will you get to experience Guatemala’s rich culture and stunning landscapes through a unique lens, you’ll also dramatically improve the lives of children from low income families.
WHAT IS THE EXPERIENCE GUATEMALA CHALLENGE?
From November 15 to 22, Niños de Guatemala will be hosting a group of roughly ten people for a challenge based on the Dutch television shows Peking Express and Wie is de Mol. Over the course of the week, contestants will be given different cultural tasks, from painting a chicken bus to recreating a traditional Guatemalan dish. Each activity will be scored, and on the final day, the winner of the challenge will be announced!
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO PARTICIPATE?
Before the start date, each contestant will be responsible for raising a minimum of 2,000 euros/2,750 dollars. A portion of this will be used to cover participants’ food, accommodation, and the cost of running the challenge. To ensure as much money as possible goes to our schools, however, contestants will have to pay for their flights.
HOW WILL THE MONEY RAISED HELP GUATEMALA’S CHILDREN?
Niños de Guatemala manages two schools that provide quality education to 336 Guatemalan children. All the donations raised through the challenge will go towards maintaining and expanding our programs. If we reach our fundraising goal, we’ll have enough to cover teachers’ salaries for our two schools for nearly a year.
