December Team to Guatemala!
We are excited to announce our December travel plans to Guatemala! Healing Projects will be taking a team to Villa Nueva, Antigua, and Guatemala City to serve in orphanages and the garbage dump communities of GC. In addition to our regular service to care for orphans, we are also launching or new classes to serve very young, teenage moms living in orphanages or very impoverished conditions with their children. Many of these very young women were victims of sex trafficking, rape, abuse, and severe neglect. Now they are responsible for the welfare of their own children, which can be extremely challenging in their living conditions. We plan to offer classes including parenting skills, attachment and bonding with your children, basic health care and hygiene, and job training.
While we are still open to professionals in the fields of social work, counseling, education, and health care, we also are in need of volunteers who are just willing to play with and love on the children of these mothers so that they can focus on the classes.
Total cost for the trip is $1,100 plus airfare (which varies somewhat by your departure city). For more info on this trip, please contact
FOR THOSE LOCAL TO KENTUCKY & TENNESSEE: Next Team Meeting will be Tues, Sept. 3 at 6:00 pm, at Panera.
