Casa Milagro is an organization designed for widows and mothers and their children in the village of Santa Cruz on the shores of Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. We provide an open and safe environment for children and women to congregate during the day. Thilda Zorn founded Casa Milagro in 1992, after moving from Germany where she was a social worker.
Casa Milagro started with a small group of 7 women and their children with the idea of providing information about nutrition, health, hygiene, and family planning to everyone that needed it in the community.
At that time, women had about 10 to 14 pregnancies and about 5 to 8 children that survived. Today, families have 2 to 5 children! In 1992 only 40 children joined the official school – today its enrolment is over 500!
