Book now to reserve your spot on Susan Stumph’s bottle school trip: June 4th to June 10th, 2020

I have been fortunate in my life to participate in many wonderful volunteer opportunities; however, the two opportunities I have had to build bottle schools in Guatemala have been the most memorable. Several members of my family went to Guatemala in 2017 to join me in working on a middle school. After a life changing week, we committed to returning in 2018. We found the second experience different, but equally as wonderful as the first. It is a humbling and incredible experience to work alongside such kind, motivated children and their families who are working so hard at the chance to have a school. In addition to building schools, we have been able to learn about Guatemalan culture and the day-to-day lives of the children. My life will forever be changed by these experiences. My family and friends who have participated in this experience with me have all expressed that helping to build the schools have not only changed their perspectives and the way they view the world, but have made them better world citizens.

Come join me, my family and friends as we return to Guatemala, June 4-10, 2020, to help build another bottle school. Working together on the school, we will make memories, experience a new culture, and help to give the children of Guatemala an opportunity of an education in their community. In the process, you will have an amazing experience that will change the way you look at yourself and the world.

Fundraising for bottle schools

You might also like to fundraise for Hug It Forward bottle schools. Fundraising for bottle schools is optional – it is not a requirement of participating in a bottle school trip.

If you choose to fundraise, we suggest a $250 fundraising goal, but some people choose to do more or less than this. It’s really up to you – how much you think your friends and families can give, how creative you can be, and how much time you’re prepared to put into it.
