Today is the day! We are kicking off our holiday giving campaign and we need your help to make it a success! We have an ambitious goal of raising $50,000 to ensure Escuela Caracol continues to grow and remain a learning haven for the children of Lake Atitlán, Guatemala! Every week we’ll be giving you a glimpse of “A Day in the Life” here at Escuela Caracol. This week, we are excited to introduce you to Teresa, who is finishing sixth grade and Andrea her teacher!
We believe that through education we can plant the seed of transformation in one of the most vulnerable places in Guatemala. Escuela Caracol is the first Waldorf school in Guatemala. It facilitates K-6 education to children in San Marcos La Laguna in Lake Atitlán. 90% of our students are indigenous Mayan children from the lake. 80% of them students have the opportunity to study at Escuela Caracol thanks to our scholarship programs made possible by private donations from generous individuals and institutions in the U.S. and Europe.
In this video we meet Teresita who is 12 years old and is currently in sixth grade, and Andrea, her sixth grade teacher. They share with us a glimpse of their experiences at Escuela Caracol.
