Hello friends, family, and fellow Nourish-ers! This is the official blog for the Nourish International trip to Guatemala! This page is where you can find all the information about out travels to Guatemala City and El Jicaro with our amazing community partner, SIFE. The four of us are so excited for this project, and we can’t wait to depart in June!
So far, the UCLA Chapter has been busy finishing up the last of our ventures for the year. We finally reached our funding goal for this project with our mind-blowingly successful Thrift Sale a few weeks ago, and we could not be prouder. Almost $900 in four hours! Not bad for a Wednesday afternoon in the springtime sun of UCLA’s Bruin Plaza With funding now completed – thanks in large part to the hard work of our Stanford partners up north! – we have shifted our focus to preparing our group for the project ahead of us. We are working on having guest lectures from professors in the International Development Studies at our next general body meetings to help us gain a deeper understanding of the issues we will be encountering during our month abroad.
We are so excited to have you all following along, and stay tuned for a full rundown on all the details of our project soon!
