Support Escuela Caracol
Indigenous Maya families make up 80% of Escuela Caracol’s students, whose tuition the school funds. Although our shared language is Spanish, Mayan language Kaqchikel and Mayan ceremony are also a part of the curriculum here. Our students come from five of the nearest towns and receive a free snack each day. The education we provide has been made possible by a diverse network of donors and anyone can be a donor! If you give to Escuela Caracol, your partnership supports the livelihood of our committed teachers, culturally relevant curriculum and opportunities for our students, and our food program.
