Twelve Yorkies (and two chaperones) have arrived at Project Somos in Guatemala. This group will actively participate in a community development project with Project Somos. This opportunity will allow our girls to gain knowledge, awareness, and understanding of the struggles and concerns that Guatemalans face. Señora Marte has had pre-trip meetings to engage the girls in thinking about how their own learning can help them make a difference in their own lives and in our local community and how they can contribute to the lives of the people they will meet in Guatemala.
