ImagininGuatemala is a non-profit organization committed to serving people in need in Guatemala. Our Service Teams come from a wide variety of faith traditions as well as secular backgrounds. We welcome all groups willing to engage in selfless work to better the lives of the poor.

ImagininGuatemala is a project originating from the common interest of a small group of Guatemalans who are passionate about supporting the well-being and development of fellow Guatemalans. ImagininGuatemala relies upon local and international friends, volunteers, and benefactors who recognize an obligation to help those less fortunate than themselves. This group is committed to uniting volunteers to assist with the physical, spiritual, emotional and educational development of marginalized people in Guatemala. Our primary role is leading Service Teams in a mission to serve the poor.
