Team Guatemala is excited to introduce you to our new volunteers who have been hard at work making the forest camp a reality.
Stefania Schepers has joined the Guatemalan team for three months as part of her university course. Niños del Lago appealed as it combined her passion for working for children with her educational specialism of International Relations and Development, focusing on Latin American history.
Bienvenidos a Guatemala, Stefania! Thank you for choosing Niños del Lago for your internship to help us achieve our development goals.
To celebrate their marriage, Claire and Simon Powell decided to travel through Central America for their honeymoon, spending a month volunteering with us in Panajachel.
They have been creating a new marketing and communications plan with new promotional materials (including this website) and revised branding. They have also created new proposals for fundraising and ways of working between the different teams.
This is Simon’s first visit to Guatemala, but Claire is an old hand, having first worked with Niños del Lago in 2009.
We wish Claire and Simon a happy marriage and a great time at the lake.
