Hope Project - Asuncion Mita, Guatemala

Dates: November 23-30, 2024 (Saturday through Saturday)


Project:
 We are planning a three-day event that includes a sports day, kids’ celebration, and community food drive. This will be our fourth year serving in the Champas and we can’t wait to be back to celebrate the children. 


Cost:
 $800/person (includes lodging, meals, and building materials.  Does not include airfare. Current estimations are $900-$1100 for a roundtrip flight.)


General Information:
 This area of the city has many street kids trying to survive without responsible adults to care for them. We have established a solid partnership with local do-gooders and will join them this week to bring food, gifts, fun, and a reminder that the kids are loved.  Accommodation will be at Conacastes Hotel where team members will sleep two in a room. The hotel is close to the Champas and has a restaurant and pool to relax in after playing with the children all day.  

Itinerary:
• Depart Saturday evening and arrive early Sunday morning.  The local team will meet us at the airport and drive us to the hotel. The rest of the day will be spent relaxing and meeting the local team for dinner.

• Monday-Wednesday we will run the events with for the community. Each day should start around 9am and go until 5pm. 

• Thursday-Friday are team appreciation days. We will host all the volunteers who help us love the children day in and day out and the families of the students we sent to school this year. It’s going to be a great time of sharing stories and building relationships.

• Friday night we will also pack our things and head out to the airport for an early morning flight.  Arrival to LAX is expected Saturday morning on the 30th.
