Friendship Bridge Insight Trips
Insight Trips are one-week Friendship Bridge staff-led trip to Guatemala. Insight Trip participants meet our clients; see first-hand the impact our Microcredit Plus program has on women, their families and their communities; and enjoy the culture and uniqueness of Guatemala. "I was amazed by the resilience of the women, the beauty of the country and the noticeable impact Friendship Bridge is making on the lives of impoverished women in Guatemala," said a 2012 Insight Trip participant. Molly Niven, a February 2012 Insight Trip participant, shared her thoughts about her experience on Friendship Bridge's blog -- check it out here.
Come see for yourself! Join us on the next trip or create a customized trip with six or more of your friends, family members or colleagues.
