Insight Trips are one-week trips to Guatemala led by Friendship Bridge staff. Insight Trip participants meet our clients; see first-hand the impact our Microcredit Plus program has on women, their families and their communities; and enjoy the culture and uniqueness of Guatemala.
Come see for yourself! Join us on the next trip or create a customized trip with six or more of your friends, family members or colleagues.
What participants have said
Experiences like this are not only special in the moment but will last a lifetime. The memories and the good fortune to have intimate exposure to the lives and homes of the wonderful people we met will pay dividends for many years to come.

It was a humbling and illuminating experience. This was a life experience.
- 2009 Participant
I was most inspired by the positive attitudes and momentum (of the women) to go forward in spite of all the adversity that they had faced. There was such strength and spirit!
