Giving back to Guatemala. http://www.casasito.org/

Guatemala is a wonderfully varied land. From sweeping mountains and stunning coast line, to erupting volcanoes, Guatemala has it all. But what makes this country amazing is the people. They are constantly smiling, and are willing to give you the world, even if they don't have anything themselves.

This is what first inspired us to volunteer in Guatemala and we have never looked back.

CasaSito provides scholarships to high achieving Guatemalan youth who come from impoverished backgrounds. It is through the scholarships that CasaSito offer that many young people can get an education instead of working. The future of Guatemala is the children, and through the work of CasaSito the cycle of poverty can be broken and the smiling people of Guatemala will face a brighter future.

We have been introduced to Guatemala in a way that would have never been available to the average tourist. We will always remember the time we visited the very rural (not accessible by car) village of Ostua to film some arts performances and interview some of the CasaSito scholarship students for the video we are making. We ate the local soup and we were chased down the road to be gifted bunches of bananas from a grateful family.

We are currently editing this video for CasaSito so they will have something to help showcase the organisation to potential donors. We hope that by through this they will receive more donations which will directly support the scholarship students, who will in turn help to better the future of Guatemala.
