2017: Reasons for volunteering with SHARE Tours on this New Year
2017 is almost here and we have to start making plans, an agenda, review all the things we did during the year that’s about to end and setting goals that we want to accomplish during the New Year.
Our hearts begin to be filled with new goals and intentions. We also like to do things we have never done before or repeat great adventures we have previously lived.
New Year's plans help us to explore new areas in our life and to commit ourselves in activities that will make a change in us. It’s in your hand to make a good plan and make a positive change in the world.
Volunteering is one of the most satisfying activities a human being can do in life. You get to help a community and the people that live in it. You also get the chance of seeing life in a different perspective and contribute to make a change in someone’s life.
SHARE Tours is a program in Guatemala that promotes a cultural exchange and a chance to make a huge difference in the life of children and families that live in rural communities of this beautiful country.
If you are thinking of being a volunteer or join a volunteering program during this 2017, here we have for you a couple of benefits and reasons why you should do some volunteering with SHARE Tours.

You will also become more empathetic and after the trip, you will be ready to work in a team, under pressure and with a new perspective of life.
