KNOW ABOUT OUR SPANISH PROGRAMS

La Unión in coordination with organizations to help the mayan community of Vuelta Grande:

Vuelta Grande - Antigua Guatemala - Mayan Community

VUELTA GRANDE

VUELTA GRANDE

Vuelta Grande people are very happy and grateful for the support that "the Union" and voluntary organizations that have carried out projects for the benefit of Vuelta Grande.

"La Union Spanish School" has been a source of support for Vuelta Grande since 2005 has helped with construction projects in school as futsal court, toilets, new classrooms, playground, games, some houses for some families, water tanks, medical days and and social activities. Voluntary organizations conducted by different countries.

PROJECTS IN VUELTA GRANDE

Like most isolated rural communities in the developing world, Vuelta Grande lacks access to technology. This deprivation represents many missed opportunities in today's society where technologies are significant tools of information and communication. The first computer lab in Vuelta Grande will be located in the village's elementary school where the kids will also receive computer training. This new generation will therefore be qualified to take advantage of what new technologies have to offer.

"La vida real" is based on the idea that there is nothing like experiencing something in order to understand it. Living the real Guatemala signifies leaving behind one's comfort to stay among a local family for a weekend. From one's own stance, it is possible to take a glance at a very distinct reality. Families welcome their guests with pride, integrating them in their daily activities, sharing their culture, and making them feel a part of their household. All the host families were appropriately trained with respect to hygiene, safety, and interculturalism. This enriching experience is a genuine cross-cultural encounter with all the challenges and apprenticeships involved.

The first step to building a better future for Vuelta Grande is to improve housing conditions. Most households in the village have dirt floor, cardboard or wooden planks walls, and tin roof. These poor housing conditions are associated with unsanitary food, inadequate personal hygiene, vulnerability to weather, and bad air quality, which in turn all have a negative impact on health. Volunteer groups can make a great difference by providing construction materials and building a room, a kitchen, or a floor for a family in need.

The eco-tour to the community of Vuelta Grande aims to raise awareness about the reality of this small village, and more importantly, about the conditions of most indigenous rural areas. The tour is given by a local guide knowledgeable about the history, life style, means of survival, and socio-economic conditions of Vuelta Grande. During the tour, it is possible to absorb nature, visit a local household, learn how to make tortillas, and enjoy a tasty traditional meal.

Guatemala Real restaurant's objective is to promote typical Guatemalan cuisine and generate income for the community. With the kitchen headed by the first local chef, it provides not only an authentic Guatemalan cuisine, but also serves as a central point of pride for the village. Moreover, Vuelta Grande's natural riches are sustainably exploited to provide for the restaurant's food and ornaments. The restaurant opens every Sunday morning offering a delicious brunch to enjoy while admiring the spectacular view from the heights of Vuelta Grade. Guatemala Real restaurant is striving to become one of the gastronomic destinations most sought in Antigua's region.
