Relive the moments that made Casita Copán into what it is today.
Our founder reflects on the obstacles our kids face as one of the original kids in our “casitas” program turns 18 and prepares for adulthood.
Casita may have been started for the kids, but it became clear from early on that we needed to focus on women first to strengthen families.
At first, our daycare was only for primary school. Then our first child graduated and didn’t want to leave! Find out what we did next.
We knew we never wanted to create an “orphanage.” We had a better idea: our casitas. Find out where the idea came from and how it’s been working so far.
Just as things started to get into a groove, the pandemic hit. But Casita has always been built on resiliency, and we got to work adapting our programs.
It’s been a life-changing adventure these past 10 years, but we’re just getting started. Join us to celebrate 10 years and then let’s get back to work!
