The Work, Play, Love team is thrilled to announce our upcoming trip, the Super Hero Swap! On July 24th, over two dozen volunteers will travel all the way to Guatemala where they will spend one week at the Hogar Malone and Maria Auxiliadora orphanages. They will perform various duties including cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, and walking the kids to school. The volunteers will also act as caregivers for the children and spend quality time with them every day. Some of the daily activities for the children will include English classes, craft time, yoga sessions, and dance classes.
At the end of the week, our volunteers will have the opportunity to hike a volcano and spend time reflecting on their life-changing trip. The presence of volunteers at the orphanages will allow the regular staff to take some well deserved time off. They normally spend every day working tirelessly to keep everything running smoothly and will certainly cherish this opportunity to relax. This trip will be exciting, full of adventure, and empowering for each volunteer. They will have a chance to change the lives of each child and show them just how much they are loved!
