International Service Learning

Guatemala

Students will spend a week at Hogar Madre Anna Vitiello, an orphanage in Sumpango Guatemala, and help to enrich the lives of children living with HIV. This service work includes a component to increase spiritual awareness within ourselves as a means to not only serve abroad but to also practically apply the service experience locally in our own communities.

The song "Anna" was written by Josh Sahunta, a former student of St. Joseph's College, who traveled to the orphanage through this ISL course. All footage of the video was filed during his time in Guatemala.
