Volunteer to Build a Sustainable Rainwater Collection System in Guatemala

This February Students Offering Support volunteers will be travelling to the community of Las Arrugas in Guatemala to build a system for collecting and storing rainwater. This sustainable method for using rainwater will be implemented at the elementary school in Las Arrugas and will become an alternative for non-potable uses (toilets, watering gardens, washing common areas, etc). This project will make a huge impact at the elementary school as it will reduce costs of maintaining the facilities all the while meeting the needs of students and faculty. All SOS trips are priced at an affordable rate and all volunteers are equipped with comprehensive medical and travel insurance for their safety and protection. Contact us to find out more information on this trip or any of other thirty trips we have planned for the year 2015! We look forward to hearing from you!

  • Volunteer to Build a Sustainable Rainwater Collection System in Guatemala

    Travel to Guatemala with SOS in February of 2015 to the community of Las Arrugas to assist in building a sustainable water project that will impact the community for years to come. Since 2004 over 1,500 SOS volunteers have travelled to 11 different countries in Central and South America to build over 160 sustainable development projects. Our projects are planned in conjunction with local organizations in the countries we travel to, ensuring that we efficiently meet specific needs of a community. As a result, volunteers have assisted in building classrooms, bridges, solar panels, community gardens, libraries and more.
