Challenge

Mal Pais and Santa Teresa are some of the fastest growing areas for tourism in Costa Rica. This creates a massive need for bilingual and sustainable education. The towns are growing fast and the population is swelling beyond the capacity of local schools. This makes placement at schools limited and the need for education reinforcement and options necessary.

Solution

We will assist local students and families with resources, scholarships and financial aid through our bilingual preschool program 'Only Love' and bilingual education from 1-12th grade at 'Futuro Verde'. We will also host service projects and promote sustainability.

Long-Term Impact

The project will improve the economic and social situation of the local community through increased levels of education and access to the tourist trade. With the longer term aim of the community assisting the program without the need of outside donations.
