Our educational programs
Our English teaching program was the number one request of the Cosanga community when we began our work. After several years of hard work and perseverance, the students in Cosanga are known for their excellence in English. Noticing the success of our students, the nearby town of Baeza requested our help as well. We teach English to students in the Cosanga elementary school (Est. 2010) and the Baeza elementary school (Est. 2012) In addition we offer extracurricular English classes in Cosanga (Est. 2010) and in Baeza (Est. 2016).

In the afternoons children from the Cosanga community come to the organization for homework help and creative learning time. This program reaches some of the most underserved kids in Cosanga and facilitates them with an environment in which they can excel! Daily activities can be anything from bowling with recycled pins to outings with our P.E.E.K cameras or simply relaxing and watching a movie.
Every “summer” in Cosanga we offer a fun filled summer school program that encompasses art, environmental education, and plain ole fun. Activities the kids always enjoy are reforestation projects, visits from the fire fighters to teach first aid, kickball, and hanging out by the river on the sunny days (and water fights, lots of water fights). Students who regularly attend are rewarded with a day trip to somewhere near Cosanga.
