While profits from our cultural immersion ecotours contribute greatly to our education and community development projects in San Ramón, it doesn’t generate enough income to fund all the projects we support and execute. For this reason, we also depend on donations to improve the standard of living of the people of our sister community. By donating, you’ll be supporting the following projects:
- The construction of two elementary school classrooms and two high school classrooms in rural communities.
- A sanitation project of building latrines in rural communities
- The construction of improved wood stoves in rural homes to reduce upper respiratory disease and deforestation
- A water project in a rural community where access to clean water is difficult
- Paying salaries of an early education teacher and physical therapist at a free clinic for children with disabilities
- Paying the salary of a weekend librarian to tutor high school students
If you have any questions or concerns, please email Robin Barth.
A big thank you to our Durham county partners!
Much of our work wouldn’t be possible without the donations and support of wonderful organizations and partners like the following. A very special thank you to:
Counter Culture Coffee, Inc. – for roasting and supporting Café San Ramón, and for supporting small organic coffee farmers in San Ramón.
