Do Guatemala is a volunteer and travel agency, recruiting international volunteers to benefit local social projects in Quetzaltenango, Antigua and other locations.
Do Guatemala is a Guatemalan-Dutch owned volunteer and travel agency, established and operating since 2012. Our objective is to facilitate services in Guatemala by organizing custom-made itineraries for volunteering, Spanish lessons and/or traveling in Guatemala.
Mission: Our mission is to make your volunteer experience something to be proud of for the rest of your life, while we show you this beautiful country of Guatemala in all its glory and grandeur. You’ll be part of the Guatemalan family, and invited to come back and to talk to your friends and family to do the same, regardless if you come for volunteering, traveling, or language lessons.
Social position: Being located in Guatemala, we are concerned with Guatemala´s development. We support the organizations and projects in our volunteer program with a donation, either financial or materialistic, to be fully involved with our partner projects. For each volunteer we receive, we will hold apart a donation for our social projects.
Do Guatemala supports local projects in Guatemala by placing volunteers at the projects. The projects we work with are 100% Guatemalan who don´t often have the knowledge and resources to recruit their volunteers abroad, so Do Guatemala jumps in as an intermediary to provide also these local projects with volunteers, as they are very much needed.
Also, we support the projects with secondary benefits like fundraise campaigns and donations, that totally benefit the projects.
