HELP US

Make A Difference

Help us by donating

Individual contributions make a huge difference for Li Ch’utam by improving our capacity to achieve our organizational goals. We offer complete transparency to our donors and are happy to answer your questions via email. General donations are used to maintain our IT Center and Volunteer Housing, purchase supplies for extra-curricular activities, end of year school trips, and other operational costs. Li Ch’utam and the residents of the Polochic Valley appreciate your support and welcome any contribution you can make, from one time to recurring contributions. Click above to make a donation now!

Sponsor a Child

Secondary education (starting at 13 years old) is not publically funded in Guatemala and therefore costs must be covered by families. Most of the families in the Polochic Valley are very poor so our scholarships cover tuition, transportation, supplies, and other school fees. All scholarship recipients also benefit from Li Ch’utam’s other educational resources including our IT Center, tutoring, and library resources. For as little as 240 Euro a year, you can ensure a child has the financial resources to continue his/her education. Click above to make a donation now!

Become Part of the Team

Li Ch’utam is constantly looking for energetic individuals to join our team, either in Guatemala or remotely from Europe. We try to have a group of five volunteers stationed in the village in the Polochic Valley year-round so are always accepting applications. We also have a team of volunteers who support the organization remotely from across Europe, assisting with fundraising, financial management, recruitment, communication, etc. If you cannot commit to working in Guatemala but still want to become more involved with Li Ch’utam- we would love to hear what skills you can bring to the team!
