Witness the Resilience
of the Maya People

Visiting the villages our students are drawn from allows you to appreciate the challenges these families face and the hard work that it takes to survive. You’ll see the tears in the eyes of grateful parents of students attending Nicolás Christian School as they say, “I can never repay you for what you have done for my child.” Be moved by the awe-inspiring beauty of the fertile volcanic mountains that surround the villages we work in and watch farmers tending corn crops on impossibly steep slopes. It’s an unforgettable experience that will enrich your spiritual relationship with the Lord!

Make a Lasting Impact on the Lives of the People of Guatemala

Experience the vibrant Mayan culture on NFE’s annual mission trips, each lasting eleven days and with a unique purpose. Our February trips typically cater to families with teenagers and children, and our service projects involve engaging with students at schools or families in villages. In August, we hold a teacher professional development seminar for approximately 1500 local educators. Finally, our November trip is a joyous celebration of graduation for preschool, junior high, and high school students. 

But no matter which trip you choose, you’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in the rich culture. Meet our students, families, and faculty, tour the new school being built, and take in the sights and sounds of Antigua, a charming Spanish colonial city. Indulge in delicious Mayan cuisine, dance to the lively marimba music in the streets, and explore the beautiful tapestries and crafts made by local artisans. Join us for an unforgettable adventure and make a difference in the lives of others.

Trip Resources

Thank you for taking the time to read about the Nicolás Fund For Education Mission Trips to Guatemala. We have been extremely encouraged by the resilience of the Maya people, even in times of adversity and difficulty. They are an inspiring example of faith to be shared around the world. Joining a mission trip will allow you to make a lasting impact on those in need and have a greatly rewarding experience, while also creating a powerful connection through cultural exchange. If a mission trip isn’t possible, supporting the mission teams financially or through prayer is just as important and beneficial. Each person has their own role to play in making a difference—how would you like to get involved today? Making the choice to participate will bring hope and joy not only now but for years to come, create generational change, and touch countless lives in Guatemala. We’d love for you to join us as we serve others with humility before God!
