Trip Leaders: Janie and Raymond Braun and Kurt and Julie Eversole

We will work with Guatemalans to construct walls using eco-bricks (plastic bottles filled with non-organic trash). We will interact with Guatemalan children and their families, learning about their lifestyle and challenges. The trip includes touring Mayan Ruins, and visiting Lake Atitlan, named The Most Beautiful Lake in the World, by National Geographic.

No fundraising is required. The 2022 school has been funded by Jean Tichenor, Ed and Lisa Guerrero, Kurt and Julie Eversole and Raymond and Janie Braun.

Hugs,
Janie and Raymond Braun & Kurt and Julie Eversole
