for a Purpose

There are many ways you could help our local community with your trip and here
You can read about some of the most interesting projects in which, with very little, you can make a huge difference.

Library & Community Center of Puerto Jimenez

Managed by Chelsea Sieber, through ASCONA, the Community Center of Puerto Jiménez, strives to provide a welcoming, safe, educational space for children of all ages to explore open-ended materials, problem-solve and learn through play!
They also offer English immersion classes for kids ages 2-12 as well as for adults. Our goal is to offer more classes in the arts and sciences like puppetry, drawing, collage and geometry of flight through paper-airplane folding to reach more local children. The Community Center exists because of donations from people who believe in our mission and if you wish to help, a donation would make a big difference.
