GUATEMALA - Antigua and Common Hope

On our first day in Antigua, Jody, Margee, Brenda and I visited an organization called Common Hope. Started by a couple from Minnesota, Common Hope works with Guatemalan families to support education, among other things. By holistically supporting families economically, educationally, and through psychological and health services, Common Hope assists affiliated children and their families as they go through school. Additionally, Common Hope links Guatemalan children with a U.S sponsor who supports their education and receives letters in return. Jody and Brenda were able to meet with the children they have sponsored while Margee and I went on an excellent tour of the organization. We truly enjoyed learning more about some great organizations in Antigua and are looking forward to meeting with the coffee farmers of Huehuetenango tomorrow!
