Culture Smart: Guatemala

Culture Smart’s Guatemala book

The “Culture Smart!” book series is a great way to gain insight into your sponsor child’s culture and country.

I recently read Culture Smart’s Guatemala book for the second time in preparation for my upcoming Compassion tour to that country.

The books are fairly short; the Guatemala book was only 136 pages, starting out with a chapter giving a brief history of the country, its geography, climate and even politics.

Other chapters cover topics like values, religion, customs and traditions, home life, travel, business customs and communicating. Often the book highlights differences in the cultures of Guatemala’s Latino population and its Maya population as well.

In this series, I’ve also read Culture Smart’s books on Bolivia, Kazakhstan, Romania, Russia and Ireland.

There are books available for many more countries, including these countries where Compassion works: India, Ecuador, Thailand, Colombia, Brazil, Uganda, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Peru, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Kenya, Philippines, Dominican Republic, Ghana and Mexico.
