Welcome to Taa’ Pi’t, NGO

And to the Heart of Guate-Maya

"When choosing between two paths, ask yourself which one has heart. Who chooses the path of the heart is never wrong." (Popol Vuh)


Taa' Pi't NGO, an Intercultural Learning Center for Tz’utujil Mayan children, is a unique, Mayan- founded non-profit in the Highlands of Guatemala on Lake Atitlan, in San Pedro la Laguna.

Taa’ Pi’t serves students between 7 and 11 years old with programs in:

  • Computer Technology
  • Ecological Education of Lake Atitlan founded in the Mayan cosmovision and built on the strengths of the Mayan culture.

The benefits of these programs are far-reaching: profoundly changing the capabilities and attitudes of the children, influencing their families and the community, and also helping to strengthen the Maya Tz'utujil cultural heritage and contribute to the dream of helping to protect Lake Atitlan - Qa Tee' Ya', (Our Mother Lake).
