Juan Pablo Romero started Los Patojos in his parent’s house and grew it into a community center and school educating over 300 students.
"Los Patojos is in the mold of Montessori and Waldorf schools. It focuses on the whole child — the intellectual, the artistic, the physical and the practical. Teachers show the students how to bake bread, to take photographs, to frame a building — and they also instill pride of place."
Romero is now building an innovative campus with incubation labs, horticulture programs, culinary arts, and more. Sacatepéquez, Guatemala. September 2018.
