ACE Non-Profit Division - Casa Guatemala, Guatamala

Casa Guatemala, Guatemala

August 6th to November 6th, 2011

Calgary, Alberta resident Christina Perkins went on the third ACE CELE Project. With the help of ACE, Christina volunteered as an English language teacher with the orphanage Casa Guatemala from August 6th until November 6th, 2011. Casa Guatemala is a rural orphanage that cares for over 250 children. 

Challenges include limited teaching resources, a lack of student workbooks or textbooks, open air classrooms, and no access to technology. However, Christina found the experience enormously rewarding.  She left Guatemala with a sense of admiration for the enormous inner strength of the children she worked with.  They literally had nothing, and yet they still found a way to be kids.
