Welcome to the new Natün experience


Natün, a commitment to
community development

We work in partnership with the communities of the Lake Atitlán region in Guatemala. Together, our Maya staff and local leaders implement community-led programs aimed at achieving significant long-term change.

Through education, we create a positive impact that can benefit an entire community for years to come. By educating students today, we foster generational change to help communities overcome poverty in the future.
