Niños de Guatemala Sciences Po is a student association in Paris that aims to raise awareness about Niños de Guatemala and to raise funds for the NGO. Throughout the year, we organize various events such as the very popular “Fiestas Latinas”, a picnic or a theater performance. Last summer, five of us had the opportunity to volunteer in the schools in Guatemala. It was very rewarding to put names to the kids we were acting for and to feel part of this amazing organisation.
Last Wednesday, during the University’s Solidarity Week, we wanted the students that take part in our events but also see some of our photos that we took from our time at NDG. That’s why we organized a photo exhibition so the University students can see the reason behind all our activities.
Some members of NDG Science Po were present at the Exhibition to tell more to the visitors about the schools and their experience in Guatemala. We hope to have recruited some more ambassadors and potential volunteers for Niños de Guatemala!
The university calendar is coming to an end but the next generation of students is ready to maintain and increase NDG’s support and activities here in France. In fact, this summer, a group of scouts – including two students of Sciences Po – will be going to Guatemala to volunteer.
