Ak Tenamit- Working with Mayan Indians in rural Guatemala
C/O Casa Rosada
Ak Tenamit is a service organization working in the rainforest of southern Guatemala with the Mayan indians of the region. We work in community development with aspects in health, education, and economic development. We take medical volunteers who speak spanish for mininum stays of three months. Exceptions are made for physicians. Many of our volunteers are medical students, residents, nurses, and physican assistants. The work involves education of local health providers and direct patient care. We have a small clinic at the main compound on the Rio Dulce river and make trips to outlying villages to conduct outreach clinics.
