Bilingual Education for Central America (BECA) is a 501©(3) founded in 2002 to provide high quality education to low-income communities in Honduras and to promote meaningful cultural exchange. BECA supports three K-through-9 bilingual schools in northern Honduras. Each school has significant community ownership and deep parent involvement.
