Join us on a learning trip to Guatemala with Director Diane Nesselhuf February 4-13, 2019
Diane's 2019 trip is full, but we are taking applications for the 2020 trip.
Sharing the Dream's philosophy is that we travel to Guatemala to be with the people instead of do for the people. We believe it is important to understand that we are on equal terms with them.
The Guatemalan people are very kind, respectful people who have built a relationship with the Sharing the Dream staff and have taught us a lot over the years. Throughout the trip you will have the opportunity to listen to their hopes and dreams and learn about their vibrant culture. We will be welcomed into their homes to learn how they make their beautiful crafts and about their work with Sharing the Dream.
