About the Campaign
This Developing World Connections volunteer project is based in and around the town of San Miguel Dueñas, a traditional Guatemalan community surrounded by rural countryside. It is an agricultural town of 9,000 people, many of whom are subsistence farm labourers. Although Dueñas is situated just 15 kilometres from the tourist centre of Antigua, it has a substantially lower standard of living.
Sara and her classmates will help with various community driven projects from our in-country partner, the Open Windows Foundation, an organization that works to provide free education to disadvantaged members of the community.
This fundraiser will help to pay for Sara’s return flight, in-country food, ground transportation and accommodation, program costs and a substantial direct donation to the our host partner.
