Discover & Serve Summer Trip
Join us for an exciting 10-day summer travel opportunity that combines service, learning, and exploration! Experience the unique culture and natural beauty of the Ixil Maya community of Chajul, Guatemala and see (and join!) Limitless Horizons Ixil (LHI) in action.
Where: We will spend most of our trip in the indigenous Maya community of Chajul, Guatemala, where LHI works. We will also visit the colonial city and UNESCO World Heritage site of Antigua, the biggest market in Central America in Chichicastenango, and the stunning Lake Atitlan.
Who: All are welcome, no Spanish language skills required. This trip is especially for LHI supporters and fans interested in learning about education and life in a remote, impoverished community and seeing LHI in action.
What: Learn about and experience life in a remote, rarely-visited, and highly impoverished indigenous Mayan community, while also visiting the most beautiful and known parts of Guatemala. With LHI as your guide you will have a uniquely deep interaction with the community of Chajul. You will get to visit schools, interact with youth and local families, and work alongside community members on a service project. Pick from two trip focuses: Rural Education (with university credit available.) or Community Development.
Join us this summer for a learning experience of a lifetime!
