The Story

The Hug it Forward Foundation with the help of volunteers from all over the world will be going to Guatemala, February 4 - 10, 2016to build yet another bottle school. We are part of the team coming from the Caribbean and would love your help to get us there to offer our service to those in need.

For 6 days we will be working side by side with village children and their families in San Martin Jilotepeque, Chimaltena, Guatemala, building a much-needed school. In Guatemala there's only 4% trash pick up and we will be using 6,500 plastic bottles filled with inorganic trash to form walls with chicken wire and cement.

We will be constructing a school where the children will learn and expand their horizons. Every child deserves an education.

Our team will also create and carry out a hygiene workshop, spend time with special-needs children in San Martin, and visit a women’s solidarity group in Tikonel.

This Voluntourism trip is an adventure we are incredibly excited to take part in with our wonderful friends and friends of friends. The trip will cost about $3000 per person to go depending on the flight cost. There are two of us. The cost will include flights, hotels, meals, all ground transportation and airport transfers.

If 6000 persons see this, it means all you have to contribute is 1.00 each
If 3000 persons see this, it means all you have to contribute is 2.00 each
If only 1250 persons see this, it means all you have to contribute is 5.00 each

Isn't it worth the investment? You will be helping a child and we will be adding value to the lives of others while learning and bringing that knowledge and skill back home to apply to our citizens in need. 

Let's do this together!
