HELP YOUR PARADISE
The Covid-19 global pandemic has had a catastrophic impact on the economy of the Avellanas Area: Playa Avellanas, San Jose de Pinilla and Playa Lagartillo.
The economy of this area relies mainly on tourism – an industry that has been shattered. As many as 90% of residents lost their jobs and their ability to earn money, pay their bills, and feed their families.
This is why we created Help Your Paradise – a food bank and long-term project to help the people in the community survive this crisis.
For 10 months we fed over 200 families
Made over 3000 food and hygiene baskets
Created Huerta Paulina the area’s first Community Garden
Participating families volunteered in the community in exchange for their food baskets – beach cleanups, tree planting, and at Huerta Paulina.
PLEASE HELP, ANY DONATION COUNTS!
As the area slowly starts to recover we are now focusing our efforts on helping the community become more self-sufficient.
Huerta Paulina – our community garden – is a major part of that. Through hands-on experience and workshops, we are teaching the community how to grow their own organic food. Families volunteer at the garden and share the harvest.
Produce enough harvest to feed the families
Produce extra harvest for sale to the community, creating income for the volunteer families
Educate the community to create products from the harvest that can be sold at local shops and farmer’s markets (such as jams, salsas, breads, organic teas etc.)
