Tesoro is an international non-profit organization that brings healthcare students on service trips to provide healthcare access to people in poverty. We currently work in Guatemala City, Guatemala with a community of approximately 13,000 people that have no access to health services. These community members live around and work in the city garbage dump for as little as $1.00 a day. We also provide educational seminars on various health related topics to this community as we believe education is power.
Tesoro Project is on a mission to empower healthcare students and leaders to heal & transform lives in developing communities.
who we are
Our vision is an inspired global healthcare network that enhances the quality of life in underserved communities.
what we do
Tesoro means "treasure" in Spanish. In our eyes, everyone is a treasure and this how we describe the people who work in the garbage dump.
