In June 2007, 11 Eastern students traveled to Izabal, Guatemala, to assist in building two homes for well-deserving families. The trip was part of Habitat for Humanity’s Global Village program, which focuses on giving participants the opportunity to visit a foreign country while helping those in need. The students witnessed the living conditions and diverse culture of the area, where four languages other than English are spoken daily — Spanish, Garifuna, Quiche and Hindi. Eastern’s students also visited a jungle swimming hole; participated in a boat tour of Rio Dulce; visited Antigua, where they hiked up a volcano; and saw caves and hot springs.
