“First of all, I want to say: Thank you for this unique experience and the very good support of the office in Granada! The care of the office team in Granada was absolutely brilliant, as we could always come with our problems to them, we could sleep in the shared flat and the Christmas party we had together was wonderful. The atmosphere was very comfortable and warm and you immediately felt welcome!”

“I was very happy about the good communication with Proyecto Mosaico before I started working in the organization. While working in the project, I did not feel like I needed a lot of help of Proyecto Mosaico. Everything was fine.”

“The people of Guatemala, especially San Cristóbal Alta Verapaz, treated me so well and gave me so much without asking for anything in return. I am forever indebted to them and hope to return someday to return the favor. This trip could not have come at a better point in my life. It has energized me and reestablished my faith in humanity. If you have the opportunity to volunteer in Guatemala or any other country, just do it!”

“Most of my time I spent with the smaller children (about 4 to 8 years old) and read books to them or played and drew with them. I also helped them improving their reading skills – as far as I could help them with it. One day they also had an excursion to the local zoo and I had the opportunity to accompany them. All these experiences allowed me to get a deeper insight in a Nicaraguan child’s life and I would say that I really had an interesting time. I could learn a lot from the children and since they’re so open-hearted we really had a lot of fun together.
All in all, I really liked the work with the children. They are so cute and it was impressive how they also cared about me and explained Spanish words that I didn’t know, for example.”

“My workplace was a circus school, so everybody who wants to can come after school and participate in our free-time activities after a shared lunch. I had my own class. I taught different things over the year, e.g. English, Hula Hoop, and Trapeze. Also I accompanied our “core group” to performances to take pictures of their work and helped out in our café at night. I loved best just to teach the kids, to see they are improving and having fun.”

“I liked it a lot as I could work with young kids that came voluntarily in their free time and were (most of the time) motivated and always really adorable.
In my work and everyday life I learned a lot about culture, traditions, and (especially young) people. Experiences that I don’t want to miss any more! After six months of living in this beautiful place I decided to extend my time there and stayed 4 more months.”

“I really enjoyed my stay in Guatemala and the children were wonderful. Usually we just worked to teach them pretty basic things, numbers, colors, basic math and reading, things like that. We played games with them and did arts and crafts.
The kids were great and I felt like I made a real connection with some of them. The advice I would give to anybody doing something similar to what I did would be expect it to be a very different experience.”

“With an direct and outspoken view on topics like children’s rights, child labor, women’s rights and oppression of women, just to mention some, the “Club” makes a difference compared to many other projects in Nicaragua.”

“Summing up I would really say that working in the project was a good and unique experience and would recommend it to other volunteers!”

“During the day, we improved the house we were living in and built the hatchery. The work was quite hard and exhausting, but it was at the same time satisfying and always funny with all the lovely people around.
I really enjoyed the work, I’m already planning to come back and work there for more time. The contact to the locals and the coordinator of the project was excellent and together with all the other volunteers I really had the impression of making a contribution to the organization.
I do really recommend this project to every interested volunteer. An advice: when you speak Spanish, your experience will be different and more amazing because you will be able to talk to a lot of interesting and nice Costa Rican people! That would really improve your stay!”

“I felt very appreciated by the managers of the nature park, they were very friendly and I felt like we did work that was actually needed and fun at the same time.
I can absolutely recommend the project to other volunteers. It’s a great way to get in touch with the local nature and people. The park is completely off the grit, so you can be sure not to do some touristy and pointless activity. Furthermore, Guatemala is an incredible country with mind-blowing nature and very welcoming people.”

“At the project, which is a still really small grass-root movement, I was involved in everyday activities at the farm and small micro projects. Moreover I was involved in organic agriculture and worked on public relations of the project. The surrounding of the rainforest, the beautiful Rio Mamoni and all the animals is breathtaking. I enjoyed the time at the farm and I am looking forward to come back soon.”
