The Experience

Nos encantaría que puedas apoyar con proyectos de mantenimiento de nuestro edificio, jardinería y carpintería. No debes ser un experto, pero si debes tener la actitud para realizar las actividades, que pueden ser: Pintar paredes, limpiar, apoyar en la elaboración de proyectos de madera para apoyo de nuestra organización. Tú habitación estará en la ONG, por lo que está prohibido fumar, beber o hacer fiestas en el lugar - Pero puedes hacerlo fuera.

Muy positiva esta experiencia sobre todo hablando de participación colaborativa, lamento que durante mi estancia los niños estuvieron de vacaciones y realmente no tuve mucho contacto con ellos

Genial experiencia de voluntariado. La estancia inicial era de 7 dias pero al final nos quedamos unos días más. Lo mejor la buena relación con todo el personal de la escuela, así como las tareas asignadas, que abarcaron más de lo estipulado, aprovechando incluso capacidades más relacionadas con mi profesión. Muchas gracias a la Asociación Cani Guatemala por esta oportunidad, que gran proyecto tienen por delante, les deseo lo mejor.

Si quieres tener una experiencia de inmersión local en una comunidad a través de una escuela, esta es tu oportunidad. CANIGUATEMALA es una asociación de larga trayectoria que vela por el bienestar educativo y deportivo de los niños y jóvenes. Los primeros días fueron tareas de mantenimiento, jardinería, limpieza y pintura de la escuela, pero los últimos 3 días tuve oportunidad de proponer otro tipo de actividades más acordes a mis capacidades y experiencia laboral. Gracias a Jorge y a todo el personal por todo lo vivido. Sin duda, repetiría! Felicidades por este gran proyecto!

Fue una muy buena experiencia para conocer más sobre el proyecto educativo que lleva adelante CANI, me dio mucho gusto conocer el compromiso que tienen con la comunidad educativa y con el deporte en particular. Todos fueron muy amables y el espacio es muy cómodo.

El trato fue excelente de principio a fin, siempre hubo apertura para escuchar mis dudas, críticas y observaciones. Las actividades fueron arduas en algunos momentos, pero siempre tuve el apoyo de los colegas involucrados en este proyecto. Absolutamente recomendable para quienes quieran aportar algo con su esfuerzo para mejorar esta hermosa comunidad.
