The participants in DukeEngage-Guatemala — who are working in Nebaj with Social Entrepreneur Corps and other students from Notre Dame, University of Maryland, and Barnard — are supporting the efforts of local organizations to help raise funds in the wake of Guatemala’s devastating volcano eruptions.
On June 3rd, 2018, Guatemala’s Volcán de Fuego had its most deadly eruption since 1902, leaving more than 100 dead and more than 800 injured in the communities of el Rodeo and la Reunión. The students decided to sell stickers to benefit volcano relief and the Centro Explorativo, a nonprofit with which they are working during their DukeEngage placement. The artwork for the stickers was created at Centro Explorativo.
Although Nebaj, where the students are living and working, is approximately 230 KM from the volcano, communities across Guatemala are supporting the victims. The fundraising project is an extension of the students’ commitment to their host community — and an example of their strong collaboration with students from other universities.
The stickers are available on Redbubble:
