Niños de Guatemala (NGO) Tour – San Lorenzo El Cubo @ Departure from Iglesia Santa Lucia, Antigua Guatemala
Jun 27 @ 7:45 am

San Lorenzo El Cubo Tour – Carpentry, Worry Doll Making and El Porvenir School

We start with a chicken bus ride (local bus) from Antigua to San Lorenzo el Cubo (20 minutes away, fare covered by tour cost) and discuss the history and community of San Lorenzo. San Lorenzo is a small town, a different world from Antigua and even Ciudad Vieja.

Out first stop is to the house of one of the families whose children attend our school. We visit the carpentry workshop of the father and learn about his working conditions and the furniture industry in Guatemala.

Our next stop is to sit down with the mother and learn about traditional worry dolls (Quitapenas), which 80% of the mothers at our school make their living from. The best part is that each person gets to make a doll – but beware it is harder than it looks!

We finish by visiting our school El Porvernir, where we meet the children, tour the school and then enjoy a local snack while we learn about the programs we run at the school as well as the NGO itself, Niños de Guatemala, and how we are helping to break the poverty cycle.

We return to Antigua by private shuttle around midday.
