How Can I Help
Tortuga Lodge and Earth Equilibrium, a 501c3 non-profit organization (www.earthequilibrium.org) have joined forces since 2012 to support projects for the benefit of the schools in the communities around Tortuga Lodge. Our goal is to support basic education and give kids a chance at a better future.
Last year we improved learning conditions by providing 86 new desks, one for each student, at the Laguna de Tortuguero School. Prior to that, the school did not have desks for all the students, and the ones that existed where in very bad shape. We also stocked the school with basic school supplies like, classroom with whiteboards, reading books, blocks of papers, markers, and other great supplies.
In the community of Tortuguero, the music school is our target. Guests of the lodge can contribute to the music program of that community. Several musical instruments like trumpets and violins have been donated to the music program over the past years.
This year our goal is to improve infrastructure and we need your help! Classrooms are seriously deteriorated, so, we are rebuilding roofs, and increasing natural light and proper ventilation. The school also needs a proper kitchen.
