Summary

Our community face serious life challenges on a daily basis that without support are unable to break the cycle. Government funding is limited and doesn't help our community, so we focuses on empowering and supporting our community of El Cocal to tackle social and economic challenges and help implement solutions, designed by them. Solutions include infrastructure, minority inclusion, alternative income generation, education, healthy habits and conservation all that will protect the lives

Challenge

El Cocal is located close to the tourism hub of Manuel Antonio. This drives the cost of living up & has a huge impact on already marginalised communities. High levels of immigration result in huge cultural differences and high unemployment, substance abuse and general despondency. This is a hard place to live, most often especially for children. Limited funding for schools means school are only open for 1/2 days. There are very few safe spaces for both children and adults to gather, play & learn

Solution

Education is key to breaking this cycle. Our project works to support, empower and train our local community members as well as provide critical funding to allow this community to work together and build on the infrastructure to allow the local community to grow, develop education and work to create income driven projects to become self sustainable. Without your donations and our support many of these people would be homeless, unemployed and hungry. Let's take action and change these lives

Long-Term Impact

The most important part of this project is awareness and empowering our local community members to tackle the issues. With their passion we provide the framework and support and work closely with them to tackle the issues. By providing them with the training and vital funding to build the infrastructure in the community allowing them to promote a sustainable future that includes local income generation and increased access to quality education.
