Pilgrim Work Trip to Guatemala
Ten Pilgrims will travel to Guatemala in August to work with Common Hope, a community development agency. Common Hope provides resources and assistance to more than 2700 children in 17 villages near Antigua and Guatemala City. Families whose children are enrolled in Common Hope become eligible for a wide variety of services, including medical care, dental clinics, vented stoves, vocational and literacy training for the adults in the family, etc. More information about Common Hope’s work can be found at www.commonhope.org. Watch for more information at Pilgrim’s group gets ready to go! They’ll be learning a lot about Guatemalan culture and history while they’re volunteering with Common Hope.
