The company supports the following organizations:

  • Pueblito Costa Rica: This organization is dedicated to providing a home to abandoned children. The place has several houses where children from 2-18 years old live with substitute mothers. In addition to donations, the company places international volunteers who support the institution with English classes, helping children with homework and school assignments and sports. The goal is to help the integral formation of children so when they have to leave Pueblito they can face the real world by themselves.
  • Cartago Association of Senior Citizens (Ascate): This is a nonprofit Association of Social Well providing comprehensive care to the elderly population, in the form of a Day Center.  With Ascate, the company places international volunteers to help in different areas, especially health.
  • Network Partners for Climate Change (Green your trip): Each client receives a certificate of planting a tree.
  • Network Vacaciones Campesinas. This organization organizes volunteer programs in the communities of northern Costa Rica.
  • International Volunteering in Cartago.  The company has partnered with the prestigious organization UBELONG, based in Washington DC in the United States and Lisbon, Portugal. Altogether we have developed projects for international volunteering. Among the objectives of international volunteering is supporting projects (NGOs) with fresh and new ideas, with volunteers who contribute their knowledge on issues of teaching English, caring for children and seniors. International volunteers live with local families of Cartago where they share the daily life and meals. This is the best way for the volunteers to understand the Costa Rican culture.
