Abstract

The goal of this project, accomplished in partnership with Seven Hills Global Outreach and Asociaciόn Sostenible Para El Desarrollo Integral y Turistico De Loma Linda (ASODILL), was to address the economic downturn caused by the recent outbreak of coffee rust in Loma Linda, Guatemala by sourcing new volunteers to participate in an educational tourism program in the community. Through our research on Loma Linda and the community’s needs, and by conducting surveys and multiple interviews, we have developed a list of recommendations in sourcing parties interested in future travel, itineraries for each trip, and marketing strategies.
