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 Antigua, a beautiful UNESCO World Heritage City.

No fundraising is required. The 2023 school has been funded by Ed and Lisa Guerrero, Kurt and Julie Eversole and Raymond and Janie Braun.

Hugs,
Janie and Raymond Braun & Kurt and Julie Eversole
