Review for Mission Guatemala Inc, New Albany, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Mission Guatemala is a very well run organization with a clear vision on how they want to contribute to the Guatemalan people. Dave is an amazing leader who truly knows the meaning of "roll-up your sleeves". The River House is a beautiful, peaceful place to stay where we can reflect on the day's activities and re-energize. The efforts of all of the staff to make each volunteer group feel special, secure, and appreciated. The food is AWESOME and I truly believe that a cookbook should be made of Delia's recipes. What I'm most impressed by is the partnership between Mission Guatemala and the communities they serve. Earning the trust and respect of the Guatemalan people is not an easy thing to do but the staff have done an amazing job of winning people over. I also really appreciate the sharing of Mayan traditions and history as part of the experience.
