Volunteering opportunities

artisans' workshop

The foundation is supporting 6 women who are starting a business making products from  glass

They have been fulfilling orders for some of the best restaurants and bars in Cartagena. 

To take the business to the next level, the women need additional tools and a workshop. 

Blue Apple has gifted a space, but the foundation needs funds to build the workshop and buy the tools, so the women have a stable place to work. 

sustainable construction

This year, the foundation is partnering with communities on the island of Tierra Bomba to share skills and build infrastructure using sustainable materials. 

We'll be building benches, raised beds, stores, paths, floors and maybe even houses!

We have the bottles.  We have the glass sand.  And we have people who can teach others the techniques.

But for each project, there are additional transport and material costs.

organic produce

We work with businesses to turn their food waste into compost. We have a kitchen garden where we grow organic herbs and produce.

We'd love to scale up the impact of this project with an internship program, training local people to grow organic produce, which can be sold to bars and restaurants in Cartagena.

We're looking for donations to fund the internship program and scale up our growing skills and capacity. 

Every peso counts, so thank you for your donation

Right now, we don't have an online donations system, but please do email us and we will send you details of how to make your donation.  Please specify if you would like to give to a specific project, or if your donation can go towards the foundation's work in general.
