Travel, plant, and connect. Our goal at Bare Hands is to link underserved communities with food autonomy and have fun while doing it. Join us on a cultural and meaningful trip to Guatemala to help. We have been organizing projects there since 2013 and have established lasting relationships with multiple villages. Our team has planted over 25,000 fruit trees, aided with communities with clean water, and even built a church.
We began in 2013, planting fruit and pine trees for the people of Chijtinimit, a small village in the mountains of Guatemala. During this time, we saw the need for people to take control of their health and food sovereignty. The Bare Hands team of volunteers work, play, and travel throughout villages in beautiful Guatemala. We plant fruit trees, build box gardens, and connect with the local people.
How it works
We gather support and volunteers for our trips. Then, we plan a rough outline of the itinerary given the resources acquired.
Once the tickets are booked, itinerary is set, we're off to Guatemala. Most of our volunteers fly from Atlanta which has a nonstop flight to GUA. Our team is picked up by a shuttle bus and off we go.
Volunteers explore and settle in. Then together we get to work on projects around the country. Most trips pass into Antigua and Pana (a must see, Lake Atitlan) whereas the projects are typically in rural villages.
Progress with your donations
The majority of our funds come from small, individual shareholders. Our projects are made possible with your donations. Since 2013, we have planted over 25,000 fruit trees and thousands more herbs and vegetables.
