Sports Outreach Trip
San Lucas Tolimán, Guatemala July 7-15, 2018
We are going back to Guatemala with a group of rising High School Juniors/Seniors and College Students. During this weeklong trip, we will:
- Play in basketball and soccer tournaments in San Lucas Tolimán and the surrounding region
- Facilitate basketball and soccer clinics for youth of all ages in San Lucas Tolimán and the surrounding region
- Help build a low-cost home
- Construct and deliver fuel-efficient, vented cooking stoves (reducing respiratory disease and fuel consumption)
The cost of this trip will be approximately $1,600 per person. Our group will focus on inviting others to partner with us by making material donations, rather than financial ones. We will also be conducting 2 fundraisers to help pay for building materials of a home and stove.
