Founded in Bismarck, North Dakota in 1991 by Patrick Atkinson, The GOD’S CHILD Project (GCP) is a non-denominational organization reaching children and families in intense poverty. GCP provides essential care for thousands of children, widows, single mothers and families in Guatemala, El Salvador, India, Malawi, and the United States. In addition, GCP’s Institute for Trafficked, Exploited, & Missing Persons ( ITEMP) prevents and rescues victims of human trafficking.

Dedicated to sustainable and permanent changes, GCP has established an international presence in these poverty-stricken countries by providing education, healthcare, basic needs, emergency disaster relief, human rights services and family care. GCP’s efforts create stability and growth in broken areas of the world.

An International ServiceTeam or Individual Volunteer Experience provides an opportunity for you to use your talents and skills to serve others. Part of the trip is spent working on necessary home-improvement projects such as building simple yet dignifying homes, pouring concrete floors in shacks (to reduce illness and infection), or laying water pipes along a mountainside trail.

No construction experience or Spanish is necessary; however, a willingness to get dirty and serve is a great asset.

For travelers interested in gaining a realistic sense of life in Guatemala, optional excursions can be added to each ServiceTeam Experience.
