Volunteering at an orphanage can be among the most rewarding experiences in a lifetime. From the smiling faces of kids to the realization that your work is truly making a difference, it’s often the case that volunteers get just as much out of their work as the people they help. If you’ve been considering joining or planning a Guatemala orphanage mission trip, the Hogar Heroes program of Work, Play, Love can help.
The Mission Of Hogar Heroes
Hogar is the Spanish word for “home.” Supporting the orphanages of Guatemala and the children that call them home is at the core of the Hogar Heroes program. We collect donations to support the ongoing operations of a girl’s orphanage and a boy’s orphanage outside of Guatemala City. We also host trips to Guatemala, where volunteers can provide much-needed help at the facilities. Whether you plan to donate or volunteer, there are many ways you can help the orphaned children of Guatemala with us.
Mission Trips To Guatemala
If you’re willing and able to volunteer at an orphanage in Guatemala, we can help. We host three or four trips each year, and we can help outside parties get in contact with the orphanage directors to plan additional trips as well. Find out the details involved with traveling with Hogar Heroes, and see if it’s right for you.
Traveling With Hogar Heroes
In our efforts to support orphanages in Guatemala, we host several volunteer trips each year. You’re more than welcome to join us! These trips are currently planned 2-3 months in advance and are managed by Kim Melia, Director of Hogar Heroes. On these trips, we help with a wide range of activities, from playing with the kids to helping with manual labor. We work closely with the orphanage directors to assist with what is most needed. For more details on how to travel with us or to read stories from previous volunteers, check out our volunteer page!
Other Volunteer Opportunities
We understand that well-meaning groups may have schedules, timeframes, and goals that are different from our plans. But we still want to help. If you are interested in Guatemala orphanage mission trips but can’t make it on one of our scheduled events, please still feel free to contact us! With our network of volunteers, orphanages, and charities, we can help you find an opportunity that’s appropriate for you.
