We are a small nonprofit Christian organization that works in community development using a critique of working without fundraising and only using our hands to provide for our needs. Using this model we started the areas first high school (in an abandoned building!) and 4 years later graduated students with the highest test scores in the country. Currently we are focusing our efforts to organic gardening practices and are developing several environmentally sustainable Eco buildings on our farm in the cloud rainforest.

We are interested in hosting people of all age, abilities, interests, etc who would be willing in helping us on our organic farm and with our building projects in the mountains in Vara Blanca.
