On the heels of our Emmy and Telly award-winning program, Journeys for Good: Cambodia, we have an opportunity to profile another important service trip. Traveling over the Christmas break with our non-profit partner Globe Aware, we will profile a volunteer trip which benefits impoverished families in Guatemala.
Why It’s Important
Guatemala is a country with tremendous need. Literacy rates are among some of the lowest in the world and poverty is prominent. Low standards of living, poor sanitation, and even limited access to clean water are all daily challenges faced by many Guatemalans.
Volunteers on this service trip will experience deep cultural immersion as they work alongside locals on projects chosen to address their needs. One chronic problem is that children, crawling on dirt floors, are often infected with parasites. Our group will be installing cement floors in the shelter homes of single moms. The concrete enables them to bleach the floors to sanitize them, reducing parasites and disease among the young children.
How You Can Help
Even though Bayside Entertainment is donating all of the production and editing equipment (plus covering all of our out of pocket costs like music licensing, closed-captioning and motion graphics) and Globe Aware is donating the ground costs so that we can cover this important story, we still need to raise $8,000 for our airfare and travel expenses.
