WHERE WE WORK

A Look Inside Thailand

Mundo Exchange operates in rural Northeast Thailand in Buengkan Province.

Buengkan Province is one of the poorest provinces within Thailand, where poverty, marginalization, and extreme living conditions are the norm. Yet there is still beauty and joy to be found in the smiles and hearts of those living here. Join us, volunteer and experience the rich culture of the area and help eradicate the pain behind the smiles.

A Look Inside guatemala

Mundo Exchange operates in remote Chajul, Quiche, found in the Northwestern mountains of Guatemala.

Guatemala’s recently dark past has led to a country of instability and violence, as well as extreme gaps between the rich and the poor. With over half the country living under the poverty line, many people can hardly afford to survive much less get an education to better their situation. Poverty is worse within the Indigenous Maya communities. ¬†Despite this, the Maya Ixil are incredibly kind people, eager to smile and passionate to share their culture with you. Help us provide opportunities for those who deserve to have a fair chance in bettering the future for ¬†themselves and their communities.
