BECA-Bilingual Education for Central America

Serve a local community, make a global impact!

Bilingual Education For Central America (BECA)


Our story

This #GivingTuesday, we’re calling on you to help BECA make a global impact!   Bilingual Education for Central America (BECA), has provided a high-quality bilingual education for close to 20 years in small communities in Cofradia and Azacualpa, Honduras. And, in doing so,  we make a huge global impact.

Our 650 students and their families attend our partnering low to no cost bilingual schools in Honduras — schools that are owned and operated by the local community.

What began in the homes of several Honduran families along with courageous volunteers from across the globe has now grown into over 650 students being served every day and over 280 teacher alumni from every corner of the world.

Today, we are just as committed as we were back in 2002 when we first started.   Now, we must build our capacity to serve a new generation of leaders and change agents –students and volunteer teachers of which 50% are Honduran and 40% of our current teachers attended our first bilingual school when they were children!

Act today and join us in empowering Honduran children and their teachers!

  • A gift of $25USD will cover a portion of our volunteer teachers’ food stipends for one month.
  • A gift of $50USD will help us improve our English, Science, and Math curricula.
  • A gift of $75USD will help us train our volunteer teachers.
  • A gift of $100USD will cover teacher supplies for one year.


Formed in 2002,  Bilingual Education for Central America (BECA) exists to promote cultural exchange and affordable bilingual education. Our volunteer-driven bilingual school model creates an environment in which Central American students learn from dedicated volunteer teachers, and those volunteers learn from the community in which they are immersed. Each year,  BECA recruits, trains, and sends volunteers from across the globe to teach in three bilingual schools in rural and semi-rural Honduras.   No teaching experience nor Spanish are required to volunteer. Volunteers are provided with free housing, a monthly food stipend, and other benefits. To learn more,  please visit our website at
