Summary

DALUZ Vivencias Equinas is a non-profit therapeutic equine center founded in 2015 that improves the quality of life of people through horses. The center offers equine programs including Equine Therapy, Assisted Social Therapy, Mini Equitation, Vaulting and Equitation for Children and Adults. We are asking that you consider supporting a child who desperately needs equine therapy but cannot afford it. We have a waiting list of vetted families that are waiting for amazing sponsors like you.

Challenge

10.5% of Costa Rica's total population has a disability. Of this subgroup 47,358 are children and adolescents, representing about 3.6% of the total number of children and adolescents in Costa Rica many living in impoverished situations with few resources. We work with a fairly broad group of children and adults offering therapies that were previously inaccessible or unavailable in Costa Rica. Raising support for these invaluable therapies and experiences is very difficult in Costa Rica.

Solution

Students receive Equine Therapy on a weekly basis tailored to help with their particular disability enabling them to achieve a higher level of function that will benefit them the rest of their lives. We have countless success stories of individuals learning to be able to brush their teeth independently, or dress, or bath, or communicate with those around them. In addition to training, regular events held at DALUZ create life-long memories and build confidence as students demonstrate new skills.

Long-Term Impact

We have a waiting list of students we have vetted who need therapy but are not able to afford it. Those who receive sponsorship see life-long benefit as they are able to learn new skills and obtain independence they did not have before. Please check out our Youtube channel for first hand accounts from students and parents on the incredible impact DALUZ has had no their lives. Many turned to equine therapy as their last resort and were shocked into tears on the impact it has had on their kids.
