Magic Carpet Rides (MCR) empowers cross-cultural understanding through creating opportunities for cultural immersion and community service in Guatemala.  We believe that there is no substitute for rubbing against the skin of our human mosaic to foster the oneness that unites our global family.

In strengthening local Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) through management consulting services, MCR also partners with community leaders to protect the watershed of Lake Atitlan, foment economic development, improve education, and preserve the Maya heritage.

MCR is a 501(c)(3) organization.  Please join us on our Magic Carpet Ride!

Go to the people.  Live with them.  Learn from them.  Love them.
Start with what they know. Build with what they have.
With the best leaders, when the work is done,  the task is accomplished, the people will say,
"We have done this for ourselves."
