About Casa Xalteva
Casa Xalteva Education and Cultural Center is a program of Fundacion Casa Xalteva, a non-profit educational and charitable foundation - with no formal political or religious affiliations - chartered by the Nicaraguan Ministry of Education. In addition to providing high-quality Spanish instruction, our purpose is to promote international and intercultural awareness and cooperation among all peoples. Our Spanish Language School in Granada Nicaragua welcomes students of all ages, backgrounds and nationalities. Working with Nicaraguans from a variety of backgrounds, we hope to share awareness of the Spanish language and the rich culture of Nicaragua with people from North America, Europe, Asia, and other parts of the world. Through our volunteer social service programs we hope also to contribute something back to help improve the lives of our Nicaraguan hosts. The foundation also raises funds for a variety of programs to help alleviate the poverty in Nicaragua, including social services for children.
Xalteva is the name of one of the groups of indigenous people who inhabited the shores of Lake Nicaragua before the Spanish conquest.
