Relax, Reconnect & Help the Kids of TAYRONA (Colombia)

We are very happy that you are interested in contributing to the community during your visit to Colombia, and thats why we offer you the opportunity of being part of an Educational Project helping the community while you visit a space of reflection and re-connection with the Self, respect for nature, conscious feeding and different alternative therapies.

We have a sense of social responsibility, because it is just right to return something to our beautiful surroundings and the community around us and this is when our Foundation is born.

We are located in the boundaries of the Tayrona National Natural Park, where there is a sector of the population with great needs.

Our goal is to give children a broader vision of what the world is and how we can all change what we do not like so much about it, not just working hand in hand with volunteers from different countries to make the context more bearable from which each child comes.

Items needed: - School Supplies: notebooks, colored pencils, markers, pens, scissors, glue etc. - Water Filters or Purifiers (You can see in the pictures the condition of the recipients they use to storage the water, in consequence they have a lot of illnesses related with it). - Maps of Colombia and the world!! - Rubik's Cube (or any puzzles games). - Educational games. - Laptops. - Books for children and adults in English, French and Spanish. - Sexual Education Books in Spanish. - Football, Volleyball and Basketball balls.
As a VISITOR we would like to share with you: As a VISITOR you can participate to an afternoon with the loving kids of the Local School! You can also stay at our beautiful Hostel and enjoy our workshops that will allow you to relax. An experience 100% off the beaten track. For Bagsharers we have a 15% discount in accommodation for those who bring School Supplies or things that they wish to share with our little neighbours. If you want to spend time with the children, we organize a round trip to the school (100 meters from our place) to meet them, understand their sittuation and help us giving them a broader vision of the world to start changing their reality.
