Review for WorldVentures Foundation, Plano, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Worldventures Foundation changed not only my life, but the lives of so many children in the villages of Guatemala. I went on a Vouluntour trip to Guatemala in March 2019 to build a bottle school for those kiddos less fortunate in the village of Flor De Paraxcha. I'm a preschool teacher so children have a special place in my heart. Education is one of the things most children in America take for granted these days and the fact that most Guatemalan children don't even have a school to get the opportunity to learn broke my heart. My group started the foundation part of school #127!!! That's not even the best part. The entire school was built from trash! There is very little waste management in Guatemala so every "bottle school" is built from plastic coke, gatorade, etc bottles and stuffed with trash and they become as hard as bricks. Each individual bottle takes 3 HOURS to stuff. The WorldVentures foundation somehow figured out a way to COMBINE both issues in Guatemala regarding their lack of education and waste management. And that's only one of the many Voluntour trips they offer. And SOPHIA STOLLER, the president of the Worldventures Foundation was ON this trip with my family and I. She was so awesome, there are pictures of us below but I didn't even know who she was until the very last day. I am so humbled and my life has forever changed thanks to the WorldVentures foundation. I can't wait to change more childrens lives in February 2020!
