What do we do?

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

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.
