GUATEMALA

What will I be doing in Guatemala?

ECO-AGRICULTURE CONSERVATION- The IVHQ Guatemala Eco-Agriculture Conservation project is based in a coffee farming community, located at the base of the Guatemalan highlands just outside of Antigua. The coffee co-operative that I will be volunteering with was set up with the help of a non-profit organization that focuses on economic development and sustainable agriculture in Guatemala.
