Join Us in the fight against poverty and homelessness in one of the most impoverished countries of the world. Joining our build teams creates service opportunities that combine physical labor, financial contributions and participation in Guatemala’s local community. Through your efforts, beneficiary families who have known only poverty can live in new homes or receive an education never before possible.
Description of Trip: Send Me build teams provide opportunities for people of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds to come together and build homes, classrooms, and infrastructure, as well as provide educational support services for any age group from kindergarten to adult. Whether you are an adult church group, youth group, or family group, you are invited to serve with us and witness the fruit of your labor and generosity. Our week-long build trip takes place in Joyabaj, Guatemala. Each trip will have an experienced Send Me staff leader guiding you every step of the way. Throughout the build week, your team will participate in the community, stay in the local hotel, and enjoy meals prepared by our specially trained Guatemalan partners. Send Me’s goal is to transform the lives of those suffering in systemic generational poverty by empowering the poor with dignity, resources, tools, and education. We are moving beyond aid to create lasting and meaningful changes through long-term development. When you give to this program, your tax-deductible donation provides a place beneficiaries families call “home.”
