With much inspiration and hope we established the foundation in 2006, with the aim to accompany women and children in vulnerable situations in their growth, skills development and personal realization.
We encourage and generate processes so that the women and children develop cognitive, social, and psycho-emotional skills. We seek to foster healthy coexistence, solidarity, equity and justice.
We remember with great joy some milestones of the foundation:
Since 2007, we have been creating safe environments for personal growth in the marginalized communities –Carpio and San Juan de Dios in Costa Rica–. Currently 60 women and 200 children benefit from our projects and programs ranging from tutoring to psycho-emotional development and solidarity economy.
The ILORI Education Program is an inspirational, holistic program that serves 200 children at social risk. We contribute to the physical, academic and, psycho-emotional needs of children. We offer:
The Granos Solidarios project provides 60 women a place to build community and grow together in solidarity. We accompany them on their journey toward economic and emotional autonomy. We offer:
Our mission is to promote alternative forms of education that encourage creativity, curiosity, and love for humans, animals, and nature. With this goal in mind, we produce stories, songs and innovative educational materials.
With our support, and with great success, Mauricio Osorio and Samanta Kennedy have developed a certified organic urban farm in Coronado, San Jose. Mauricio and Samanta are experts in urban farming, and they have established partnerships with other farmers and institutions that promote organic agriculture. The urban farm also serves as a wonderful space for workshops and educational activities for ILORI children and visitors.
Mundo ILORI is a recreational and educational space in Alajuela. It provides an environment for the women and children who participate in our programs to engage with nature and develop their unique abilities. Participants learn and develop together through workshops, camping, training, games, and recreation.
We are devoted to creativity and innovative education. We work to help others develop passions for learning and inner growth. We are a multi-disciplined group of professionals committed to this goal, and we find true joy in growing alongside the marginalized women and children we serve.
