Volunteer Guatemala Alotenango

Volunteer Guatemala, Alotenango is a town of about 16,000 inhabitants in Guatemala’s central highlands, approximately 10 km (6 miles) from Antigua. Roughly 70 percent of the town’s inhabitants are indigenous. The local economy is mostly based on agriculture and 35 percent of the population is estimated to be illiterate. Many families in Alotenango live below the poverty line and particularly the children suffer from poor living conditions and lack of adequate education and healthcare.

Medical volunteers are welcome in Guatemala.  Our medical and nursing student volunteer in the local community health center in this town.
