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 Worldview elements are also a part of the curriculum here. Our students come from Lake Atitlán area and receive a free snack each day.

The education we provide has been made possible thanks to a diverse network of donors, you can become part of this kind group by sponsoring a child here.

If you give to Escuela Caracol, your partnership supports the livelihood of our committed teachers, a culturally relevant curriculum, opportunities for our students and our nutrition programme.
