Review for Mission Guatemala Inc, New Albany, IN, USA
A few weeks ago I completed my second mission trip to Guatemala through Mission Guatemala. This organization is second to none both in terms of their process before and during the trip but more importantly in terms of the impact they are making on the Guatemalan communities they serve. My husband and I were team leaders for both trips and the Mission Guatemala team did a fabulous job ensuring that things were organized ahead of time and that we had great channels of communication for questions and coordination.
The process Mission Guatemala has for teams is excellent. The accomodations and meals are wonderful and the staff and guides took such good care of us. It was great that all of the MG staff and employees are either Guatemalan or have such great rapport and connections in Guatemala. All of us were so impressed with what Mission Guatemala was able to do from the medical clinic to the scholarship programs and the work projects, as well. They have been so adaptive and so open to meeting the needs in the local communities. What impressed us the most was the way that MG had done all of this hand-in-hand with the Guatemalan people. The clinic has a Guatemalan doctor and Guatemalan employees. The translators and guides at our worksites were Guatemalan. It is so much more meaningful and impactful when an organization partners with the local people to make a difference and that is what Mission Guatemala has very successfully done.
We already have our reservation for another trip there in 2022!
