Raquel's Guatemala Community Service Trip
Organized by: Raquel Friedmann
My name is Raquel Friedmann and I am a currently pursing my undergraduate degree at a 4 year institution. I am extremely passionate about social justice, sustainable development, and community empowerment. I want to pursue these passions through volunteering in Guatemala with Cross Cultural Solutions. CCS believes that lasting change is achieved through small, personal acts of kindness and selflessness, and through the spreading of tolerance and understanding between people and cultures. Their mission is truly impactful, and I cannot wait to work with their many other volunteers in August.
During my service trip I will act as a teachers assistant to help improve the
education of children in the local community. Contributions towards this service trip, no matter how small, will allow me to touch the lives of the children I will encounter and allow them to impact my life as well. My goal is to raise $2,000 for this trip which will help pay for my expenses and support the Cross Cultural Solutions Guatemala division.
