Building for the Future Helping the Padre Nello School
Jicaro Island Ecolodge was built on the premise of sustainability. Translated to our daily work this means that our operations always try to minimize impact on the environment and that we actively seek to contribute to our surrounding community. Jicaro is developing a community-based outreach program focused around education. There are three public elementary schools in the vicinity of Jicaro with a total student body of 210 (preschool to 6th grade) and 9 teachers. These schools do not have the necessary resources to teach basic reading, writing, and math skills. They lack basic supplies and materials and infrastructure, like desks, chairs and classroom space to teach, and even proper space for the children to play.
We work with Earth Equilibrium which is a 501c3 nonprofit organization inspiring and engaging others towards bold action and supporting projects that show that we can live more amicably with our planet. Your donations are tax deductible.
Our first project, the Padre Nello School, supports more than 85 children and you can help by supporting the following projects.
Water Filtration and solar energy system
Installing a water filtration and solar energy system for students to have access to safe drinking water and electricity.
Fundraising Goal $4,500
