About

Niños de Guatemala - Antigua, GUATEMALA

Niños de Guatemala (NDG) provides underprivileged children with an education. NDG operates two primary schools and a secondary school which house over 500 Guatemalan children that would otherwise not have been able to go to school. All students receive English classes as part of our standard curriculum. Given the strength of the tourism industry in Guatemala, even a basic grasp of English can dramatically improve a student’s chances of finding a job once he or she graduates from our program.


At Niños de Guatemala we have one local English teacher per school. Niños de Guatemala is seeking a native English speaker volunteer who can help bring the English Program to the next level.
