From the Field: Follow Us Down to Guatemala

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: There are places on this planet that break our hearts open to the beauty and possibility of life. Guatemala is one of those places. It’s no wonder I’m so incredibly excited to be heading back down there.

That’s right, in just a few days I’ll be traveling to Guatemala with Reading Village staff and supporters for our semi-annual Learning Journey. From April 25th to May 2nd we’ll be visiting ancient Mayan ruins, meeting our scholars, touring the communities, and celebrating literacy with the children. It’s going to be a great way for Reading Village supporters new and old to see the impact their investments have had!

As the snow piles up here in Colorado, I can think of nothing more lovely than a warm adventure down south, and I want you to experience it with me! Here’s how:

  • Visit our homepage to sign up for the Reading Village newsletter and I’ll make sure you receive weekly updates from the trip.
  • Check out our blog on a daily basis for new photos and great stories!
  • If you’re inspired by what you see, consider giving the gift of literacy. While we’re in the field we’ll be able to tell you exactly where you’re investment is going!

Thanks for checking in! Stay tuned for regular updates from Guatemala starting next week!
