It was a pleasure to spend a week volunteering at the Colegio International Poptun. The children, teachers and the support staff were very welcoming to us. It is amazing to see the teachers' love and dedication to the kids' wellbeeing and their education. Everyone at school is happy and cheerful. The school has a beautiful setting in the woods. The goal for us was to contribute our time and skills to the school improvements and in return learn about local Guatemalan daily lives and culture. We loved the experience and the memories will forever be in our hearts.

Working at the school was super fun and rewarding. We only volunteered for 9 days but we really enjoyed our time at the school, meeting locals, enjoying the nature and viewpoints around poptun. We loved having bikes to get about from place to place. The hours were flexible which is great. The teachers are hardworking and you can see the passion and care they have for the children. We hope to come back and visit everyone one day, thank you for having us <3

It was an amazing experience surrounded by kind, caring and welcoming staff. The children are lovely and really do engage with you despite the language barrier. The staff are so grateful and welcome you within the community. I spent my days in the baby gym which volunteers don't usually do, so the teachers there where really happy and I quickly gained the trust of the little ones (who are super adorable). An unforgettable experience with unforgettable people - I will miss it!

We only spent one week at the international school in Poptun, but it was a wonderful experience and a great time!
Mishelle, all the teachers and the kids are very welcoming and friendly.
The accommodation is really good. The room is big and clean and the food is delicious.
You feel like you are in a beautiful jungle, but the city center is very close.
The work is very fun, you can choose your own project and get in touch with the kids!
Almost everyone speaks spanish, if you have a little knowledge it is a bit difficult, but good to practice.
Sadly, we couldn’t stay longer.
Thanks to everyone!

Que hermoso fue poder estar con estos niños tan amables, inteligentes y divertidos. La experiencia en Colégio Internacional Poptun es algo que realmente recomiendo. Allí fui muy bien recibida y tuve la acogida y el estímulo que necesitaba para desarrollar mi trabajo. Además, pude contar con una habitación cómoda y ventilada ubicada en el propio colegio, en una zona muy arbolada. Gracias a Mishelle por la oportunidad, a las teachears y a todo el equipo por recibirme e invitarme a las actividades de convivencia (fútbol, ​​baloncesto, cine...) y por fin a los niños por darle sentido a todo esto.
