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.  




The realization of this documentary comes at a defining moment in the history of Escuela Caracol. Our educational community joined together in a systematization of experiences to reflect on the past seven years and identify the extent of impact that has been made.
