“I wish everyone could spend at least one day at The GOD’S CHILD Project. You could see the great work being done to educate children and improve lives. You would also see that a small donation makes a real difference in a child’s life. The GOD’S CHILD Project is their only hope to rise out of the poverty into which they were born.”

— Bob Scheel (North Dakota)

Embark on an Adventure

While on a GOD’S CHILD Project ServiceTeam™ Experience, you have the chance to change lives during a meaningful volunteer adventure vacation. Part of your trip is spent engaged constructing simple, yet dignifying homes. The rest is spent volunteering and experiencing all the beauty and adventure surrounding you. No construction experience or foreign language skills are necessary, but a willingness to explore and get dirty is required!

A Uniting Experience

The ServiceTeam Experience is perfect for high schools, colleges and universities, corporate leadership training and community and service groups, church and youth groups of all faiths, and individuals and families.

Usually, the ServiceTeam Experience unfolds in Guatemala, but teams have also visited our programs in El Salvador, the United States, and Malawi.

Not interested in home building?

The ServiceTeam Experience is still a great option for your group! Alternative Experiences include larger construction projects, Education, Disaster Relief, Medical care, Dental Care, Physical Therapy Occupational Therapy, Nursing, Alternative Health Care, Social Work or Social Sciences.

“I will never forget the moment we gave the house we built to the poor family for whom we had built it. That changed my life forever. The women lined up to receive bags of donated vegetables and each one...without exception...thanked me and gave me a heartfelt hug.”
