FUNDRAISING

Whether you are sharing information about WINGS with a group of friends, hosting an event in support of WINGS, or coordinating a larger initiative, every person that you talk with and every dollar that you help to raise has a profound impact on our ability to sustain our programs.

CURRENT WORK OPPORTUNITIES

We currently have no openings. Please check back here or follow us on Facebook for updates.

Do you want to help WINGS help others? Do you strive to make a difference? Do you show initiative? If you answered “Yes!” to these questions, you may be a good fit to volunteer at WINGS!

WINGS occasionally needs interns or volunteers to assist with administration and fundraising at our main office in Antigua. WINGS generally does not offer any compensation to volunteers or interns. We do, however, provide the opportunity to work alongside our committed, energetic staff, and to learn about our programs. We will also provide letters of reference to interns who contribute at least one month of service.

Because of the sensitive nature of our programs, and the trust that is required for our Educators to be effective in the targeted communities, we do not offer field-based volunteer positions. However, you can still make a huge impact as a volunteer by helping out our busy office and providing us with any skills that you have! We also offer summer internships for Masters of Public Health (MPH) students who have skills in program monitoring and evaluation. If you would like to further discuss volunteering at WINGS and find out where we can most utilize your skills, please send an e-mail with your résumé attached to info@wingsguate.org or periodically check back on our website for new opportunities.

WINGS CLINIC IN ANTIGUA

You are very welcome to visit our clinic in Antigua on a walk-in basis. Our priority is to serve the low-income, rural and indigenous population in Guatemala, but we also offer reproductive health information and services to the general public, asking for a donation which helps us support our work. We offer a professional and personalized service and we have English speakers on staff to make sure you feel comfortable if you’re brushing up on your Spanish while in Antigua.
Please see below for the list of services we offer as well as suggested donations.

WINGS DOCUMENTARY

Click on the image below to watch the documentary:

Undeterred by Guatemala’s powerful religious organizations, conservative politicians, and a male-dominated culture that leaves women without a voice, Evelyn and Ester are two women who courageously travel the countryside on a journey to provide women with family planning education and access to contraceptive methods.

 

Blessed Fruit of the Womb is their story–a story about the fight for reproductive rights and freedom in a country gripped by staggering poverty, the highest fertility rate in Latin America, and one of the highest rates of chronic malnutrition in the world.

 

Documentary by Charlene Music & Peter Jordan
