There are a lot of different places for volunteering in Antigua. Some of this
COMMON HOPE: One of the most important thing we do is creating opportunities
so that children and families can improve their own lives.
OBRAS SOCIALES DEL HERMANO PEDRO
OBRAS SOCIALES DEL HERMANO PEDRO: Obras Sociales del Hermano Pedro
complex serves the poor and sick people from Antigua and many surrounding areas.
NUESTROS AHIJADOS: National and international employees and volunteers
from across the country and from around the world work together as one team to
educate and care for the poor.
The heart of Common Hope’s work in
Guatemala is education. In Antigua, we
are helping 2,300 students attend
school. In New Hope, we are building a
school for over 600 students. In the
Ixcán jungle, we are helping 60 students
attend junior high. We also believe that
a comprehensive approach to human
development is critical in helping
families and communities in order to
reach their full potential. For this
reason, we also focus our efforts on
health care, housing, family and
community development. Web Site:
Visit the farm just outside Antigua
Guatemala, and be prepared to
experience an ecological endeavor of
the highest potential. Visitors can enjoy
our macadamia pancakes and
chocolates while learning about the
genetic variety we have taken 30 years
to develop. See for yourself how a
single farm has already contributed so
much to replanting the tropical forest,
and find out how you can play a part!

This truly is a no-nonsense,
cost-effective program that seeks to
break the poor out of poverty; of the
current 14 full-time, paid employees in
the program, 8 are graduates of the
program themselves. As teachers,
counselors, a receptionist, doctor, and
administrative and maintenance
personnel, these Guatemalans form the
program's core. They are enhanced
and complimented by the program's
national and international volunteers,
on whom the program depends.
