Limitless Horizons Ixil, Inc.
September 30, 2011

I have been volunteering with Limitless Horizons Ixil (LHI) for almost 2 months. I was interested in this organization because of the work they do, connecting indigenous Mayan youth with educational opportunities. I have had a great experience so far. Everyone on the team (local and international staff) has been welcoming, and supportive of my goals in studying Spanish in addition to wanting to contribute to the organization. Volunteering in this role has been really interesting, I have gotten to participate in a wide range of tasks; from painting at the library with the students to translating to photographing crafts. Its been a good balance of my skills and their needs.
Overall, the thing that has impressed me most is the dedication of the staff to see these students, and in turn this community, succeed. Currently serving approximately 85 students, LHI seems on the brink of expansion in the future. Easily a worthwhile organization to connect
with and donate to; I can see firsthand how the money is well spent. Education is changing lives.
