CasaSito is a small NGO in Guatemala, founded in 2004, with the focus on supporting educational centres close to Antigua in the Department of Sacatepéquez.
Mission: CasaSito increases educational opportunities in rural areas so that indigenous children living in poverty can attend school, receive quality instruction, and obtain the skills they need to improve their lives.
Vision: Those who receive our support will become leaders in their families, communities and beyond. They will value education, health, and personal relationships. They will strive to reach their potential and lift themselves and their families out of poverty. They will also value service and continue helping others throughout their lives.
