Fundacion DALUZ New Home

We are so thrilled to share with you all that DALUZ has a New Home. We have moved our facility to a new location that was donated by a sponsor for a few years. It was an old stable barn so it has basic installations but we are in the process of fundraising and remodeling it to make adjustments for the needs of people with disabilities. The students have loved our new home and have been excited to be a part of the move. We feel the light in every aspect!! 

We have also implemented a new program in following up on the students and their goals with our instructors. It has been amazing to see the students be inspired and work on their goals through the activities we do with horses. We attach the report of the students and some pictures! 

Although there are still COVID related restrictions in place in Costa Rica, we are excited for the second half of the year and seeing how motivated the students are to continue there therapy with us! Thank you all for being a part of our mission in helping people with horses!

Fundacion DALUZ 2020 Year end 2020

Dear Sponsors,


Given the  situtaion of the world with this pandemic, I hope you are all well. 

During 2020, due to Covid-19 restriccions and having been closed for several months, we worked with the students in different areas helping them in their organizational, social and developmental skills with tasks they could do at home based on each of their goals they have in thier equine therapy clases. We noticed this reinforced their autonomy and allowed the families to take a part in their day to day skills and goals. 

Once we were allowed to reincorporate clases again, we reinforced these goals with the horse and having their family members take part in clases. We had an amazing year, despite the trials with COVID. It has been amazing to see the students making big efforts in every one of the skills we are working with them on and applying them at home.  We are glad to be again enjoying the social part of clases and interacting with their best four legged friends. 

Here you can see a video of each student and their achievements in 2020. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0bwzD0C0ts

We are very excited to start the new year 2021 with new goals and new ways of bringing LIGHT into each of them and their families.  We couldn't do it without your input and help! Thank you very much! Together we shine more!

Very best regards,

Fundacion DALUZ - July 30, 2020 Update

Dear Sponsors,

I hope you and your families are well, given the situation in the world.

Due to Covid-19 and the affects it has had on the students, both personal, physical, emotional and educational; we decided to add a new methodology to Equine Therapy classes, reinforcing the autonomy of each student.

In order to incorporate parents or family companions in their processes, we have trained them to take part in EquineTherapy classes as lateral assistants. We have noticed how this has increased their affinity to the effort which has also had a positive impact on our students.

Here you can see a video of each week's program and their achievements. https://youtu.be/lMZMkaM3L0w

Additionally, in the video, we proudly share with you the achievement of the DALUZ Foundation students who participated in the Special Equestrian Olympics that was held virtually.

The month of May we were closed due to the commercial restriction according to the guidelines of the country, I attach the quarterly report for April, June and July per student for your knowledge according to the objectives set for 2020 and its achievements.

These have been difficult months, but we continue working with each of the students on their goals and bringing LIGHT to each of their homes. We couldn't do it without your input and help! Thank you very much! Together we shine more!

Very best regards,
