ABOUT OUR GUATEMALA PROJECTS
Our Direct Trade Impact Exploration Guatemala is located near the historic city of Antigua. Volunteers work with direct trade farmers and artisans to explore the impact of direct trade policies and complete projects that benefit the communities.
“Words cannot describe all that we have learned and experienced this past week and the friendships we have made and will always cherish. As much as we love it here and want to continue helping this country and its people, we cannot wait to come home and share all that we have observed and learned with everyone. This has really been a life changing experience one we wish to continue as we go on with our lives.” Michelle Brahen, CCI Guatemala Volunteer, Keene State University
