The issue with the rain, has very little to do with getting wet and a lot to do with putting their lives in danger crossing the...

    Empowering Women in Osa
    By - Alejandra Monge - Executive Director
    Investing in women is key to community development.  Why? Because it is proven that 95% of a woman’s income is immediately invested in their family’s well-being.  Unlike men, everything that a woman earns goes directly for food, school supplies and to care for the family needs. Yolanda is a seamstress...

    Awesome math, the magic of giving!
    By - Alejandra Monge - Executive Director
    Did you know that your donation became 10 times its worth? It is like a philanthropic stock market, that brings good things to the communities. I know this sounds like crazy math! I am sure that you never received a math class in which the teacher said 1=10. But once I show you how your dollar was multiplied by 10, you will...

    They have a dream!
    By - Alejandra Monge - Executive Director
    They have a dream! They dream to work to provide for their families, they dream to have good drinking water. Many years ago before the foundation had any projects in the sleepy town of El Progreso, I was stranded there. The river in my way was impossible to cross, it was a rainy afternoon and I could see the people on...
