Here are some testimonies of our work.

Sometimes it is hard to see the impact of a conservation project.  This video shows some of the impressions of several school teachers that have worked with us for years.  They praise the work that our environmental educators have done for the schools.This 2 minutes video speak a thousand words.  Feel free to share it with your friends and colleagues  

As part of our conservation programs in Osa, we have done efforts with the younger population to improve their chances to succeed in school, in hopes that they’ll aspire to continue their education and become productive citizens.  We keep organizing activities that promote self-esteem, teamwork, proactivity, and leadership.  We hope that we will create a new generation of children that will not only be good citizens but also conservation leaders. 

Additionally, we continue to implement weekly tutoring sessions in 4 schools with children of the area to fill the educational gap in rural areas and help them succeed in school.  We have learned that children that struggle with school will eventually drop out of it.   According to Rumberger, “Dropouts face extremely bleak economic and social prospects. Compared to high school graduates, they are less likely find a job and earn a living wage, and more likely to be poor and to suffer from a variety of adverse health outcomes”[1].   As a result, dropouts are also very vulnerable to a variety of issues, such as alcoholism and drug consumption, criminal behavior and other negative behavior.
