Mission Statement

We believe every child deserves the basic human right of a high-quality education, and that educating a child is the most sustainable vehicle for establishing thriving economies and flourishing communities. Our mission is to provide access to high quality bilingual education to kids throughout Central America by building sustainable partnerships, establishing community-led volunteer-driven schools, and promoting cultural exchange.

Description

Did you know that the word "BECA" means "scholarship" in Spanish? BECA - Bilingual Education for Central America - is a non-profit 501(c)(3) grassroots organization focused on realizing large hopes and dreams for the children and families of Honduras, and eventually children and families throughout Central America and the USA.

BECA believes that the most efficient and self-sustaining means of allowing Central America to flourish lies in the provision of quality education for all. The positive outcomes of a healthy educational system are many: the development of critical thinkers and innovators, the creation of a class of skilled laborers, and the growth of a socially-conscious citizenry. BECA envisions a region where everyone will have access to quality education regardless of economic means.

To that end, we strive to collaborate with a vast network of schools that will graduate students who champion learning and literacy, challenge the status quo, and who embody a service-minded attitude to become persistent advocates for social change. Our goal is not to encourage students to pursue opportunities outside of Central America, but rather to empower and enable them to remain in the region by equipping them with the skills they need to access economic and social opportunity from within their native countries.
