Update from the Field: GIFTS Program

Written by Erin Keller '17 Last week I was surrounded by the lush green of the Guatemalan countryside, smoking volcanoes, and the beautiful smiles of Guatemalan children. This summer, I was fortunate to be able to return again to a place that is dear to my heart, Santa Maria de Jesús, Guatemala. Santa Maria is a small Mayan village located at the base of Volcán de Agua outside of Antigua, Guatemala. This was my fifth trip to this village, and I was excited to see those who have become my friends and family over the years.
