Fun with the kids from Pacaya Village Guatemala

After spending the past few days working on building a bathroom for a single mother in a small village in Guatemala, we had the pleasure of spending a fun day with 160 kids from another village, Pacaya.

Most of these kids have never been out of their tiny village at the base of the active volcano, Pacaya, let alone, seen the sites of this upscale mall with a play place called Divercity.

Divercity is a childrens’ themed faux city, that provides hands on fun for the kids, exposing them to many occupations, in a fun atmosphere.

Watch the video, and pictures, to see many of them, including, veterinarian, TV reporter, farmer, radio DJ, fireman, plumber, detective, model, and much, much more!

We had such a great time spending the day with these kids, and as an added bonus, our sponsor child, Jonathan, was there as well! We played and had lunch with him.

It is so exciting watching the children’s reactions to seeing all this for the 1st time. I can only imagine what must be running through their minds. Cinder block homes, many with dirt floors, and outdoor bathrooms, are the norm for these kids.
