Guatemala Literacy Project (GLP) Tours
 

Open to members of Rotary International, the Guatemala Literacy Project (GLP) Tour offers a week of celebrations and opportunities to interact with the children and families served by CoEd and its partnership with Rotary, the GLP!

Deliver badly-needed textbooks and inaugurate brand-new computer centers at impoverished Guatemalan schools. Learn about Guatemalan history and culture, as well as the challenges faced by people in the developing world, all the while sharing in the fellowship of other Rotarians from the U.S., Canada and Guatemala.

"The trip FAR exceeded our expectations in every way. It was inspiring to be with such a fine group of caring people and to have an opportunity to make a difference in a hurting and needy world."
–Judy & Dick Martin, Glendale-Kachina, AZ Rotary
