Students will spend a week at Hogar Madre Anna Vitiello, an orphanage in Sumpango, Guatemala, and help enrich the lives of orphaned children living with HIV. This service work includes a component to increase spiritual awareness within oneself as a means not only to serve abroad but also to apply the experience locally in one's own community.
This course is not offered during the 2019-2020 academic year.
Students will travel during the winter term Reading Week.
Cost (including food, accommodations and travel) is approximately $1,600, plus the University of Alberta Tuition (or Audit) Fee.
The song "Anna" was written by Josh Sahunta
, a former student of St. Joseph's College, who traveled to the orphanage
as part of this ISL course. All footage of the video was filmed during his time in Guatemala.
