THE TEN DOLLAR CLUB - Volunteer Peten
$1,270 went to Volunteer Peten, an organization working in Guatemala. The money will buy textbooks, dictionaries, thesauri, and atlases for three classes in each of three different schools in La Union, Ixhuacut and El Tigre. Additionally, a photocopier, paper, toner, and book binding supplies will be attained to enable educators there to copy and share other papers for curent and future students in these and neighboring communities. While literacy levels are very low in Guatemala--far below the average for Latin America--and children have a difficult time staying in school, 180 children will be helped immediately as a result of this project and have a better chance at a quality education and life out of poverty.
Welcome to the Volunteer Petèn here you can find all the information necessary to plan your stay in the jungle of Guatemala, Central America as a volunteer, Spanish student, or adventurer.
This site also has all our information on our ecological park, Spanish School, jungle tours, environmental education project, other community projects, and general information on San Andrès, Petèn.
The main goal of Volunteer Petén is to help and initiate community projects. Most of our projects are designed to assist local schools, the municipal government, and small community groups. As we grow and our volunteer program grows, we hope to broaden our sphere of assistance to all communities within the municipality of San Andres, and ultimately, all of Petén.
