Our Plans

1. Choose your plan

Purchase the plan that works best for you! You'll be prompted to create an account, and tell us a few details about you and your language goals.

How it works step 1


Get paired

Your Olas mom will open up a WhatsApp chat with you within a week of your purchase. Introduce yourself (with photos, audio messages, even emojis!) and schedule your first session directly with her.

How it works step 3


Start your conversation

Your Olas mom will send you suggested tema, but also let her know your personal learning goals! Sessions can occur via live audio memos, audio calls, video calls, and/or some text depending upon your preferences.

Who Are Olas Moms

Why Olas?

In the community surrounding the Guatemala City garbage dump, or Zones 3 and 7,  many layers of socio-economic barriers overlap to create complex cycles of poverty and violence. Within this context, Olas moms build sustainable livelihoods for themselves outside of the informal recycling economy.


Zones 3 and 7 exist at the intersection of many of the key conversations that are already central to Spanish learners' curriculum, from gender equality, to environment and sustainability, to technology. Through Olas, women in Zones 3 and 7 are centered in these key issues as Spanish educators and experts on their country and community.

Dr. Jessica Perez del Toro, Spanish Educator at Westridge School

“We saw a rather dramatic increase in students’ confidence in speaking and writing and their interest in the language and culture piqued—it was exciting.”
