I visit two NGO’s in the villages: “Casa Guatemala”, a school and a home to almost three hundred children, where I met some of the most inquisitive little kids; And "Ak-Tenamit", a Co-op for indigenous Mayan communities, specializing in handicrafts and tourism. They provide youth with vocational training and also run a clinic and work on gender equity programs. Beautiful people.
I’ve been really bad at uploading photos, so below are some pictures from the day:
Rio Dulce in the early morning; curious kids at Casa Guatemala (this boy kept posing for different pictures; Water lily field; and my cabin for the night complete with a little pond in the back where I spotted a turtle.
