Everything comes from the dream of providing education through Waldorf Pedagogy to children from Lake Atitlán, a dream that has grown until reaching what we know today as Escuela Caracol.
From starting in a small room with only a few students, today Escuela Caracol has enough space to receive more than 90 students, whom, with lots of love and respect, we call Caracolitos. It was due to this growth that the need for more space manifested, which led us to embrace the project of building two new classrooms. Up to this date, the construction is almost finished.
This construction has been possible thanks to the kind donations of friends and supporters of our school and the work of our dear architect and mother of the school, Rocío Araujo.
During the construction process, we have made choices driven to have two new classrooms with the ideal conditions for our Caracolitos to be holistically nurtured and developed as human beings.
These choices were strictly related to construction materials, which made our initial numbers grew in $2500.
This difference in the budget won’t stop us. soon we will finish the construction and will have two new classrooms ready for our Caracolitos to fully develop under conditions of love and respect.
