Inspired by the Zapotec word “Bacaanda”, our dream is that one day all citizens of rural communities will enjoy the physical and educational well-being and employment opportunities that will allow them to realize their dreams for a better future.
At the Bacaanda Foundation we work hand-in-hand with each community to improve educational opportunities by helping create a supportive classroom environment with the necessary infrastructure, school supplies and technological resources, improvements that enhance the quality of life and future opportunities of the children in each community. These achievements depend on collaboration between parents, benefactors and volunteers.

Intelligent Rural Schools is a program to invest in the education of elementary and middle school students in southern Oaxaca state. The program utilizes technology delivered through the internet to bridge the knowledge gap between rural and urban schools.
Through more than 10 years of work, we have engaged in multiple projects targeting health, education and quality of life in rural Mexico. We recognize the central role played by school benefactors, partners and strategic volunteers who have worked closely with us to achieve the Foundation’s goals.
