Casa Guatemala

Everyone can make a difference


Casa Guatemala is a group of dedicated individuals and volunteers striving to make a difference. Casa Guatemala currently supports more than 300 children. We're able to provide this care thanks to the generous contribution of 20 teachers, 20 employees, and approximately 20 international volunteers. We also have affiliate, registered charities in Canada and the US that help to collect the funds needed to operate this large organization.



2018 Top-rated nonprofit


Casa Guatemala has been recognized as a Top-Rated Great Non-Profit for 2018. This honor is awarded based on user reviews and ratings from volunteers, donors, board members, and partners.

We couldn’t do what we do without you, and we’re excited to keep generating positive experiences not only for the children whose lives we touch, but also all the people like you who make it possible.
