In an ongoing effort to provide children with the opportunity to be well-nourished and well-educated, we have focused our efforts on empowering the children in Costa Rica, as well as many other places around the globe. Whether it's inspiring a sense of self-worth through education and empowerment opportunities or supporting the nutritional needs of children, our aim is to make a difference in the lives of children and communities around the world. Our tours have allowed us to experience the best of gorgeous places like Costa Rica, and we feel responsibility towards supporting and helping to sustain these communities in any way that we can.

Partnership with CEPIA Foundation in Costa Rica

Through a partnership with CEPIA Foundation (Culture, Education, and Psychology for Infants and Adolescents), we are able to help the children of Guanacaste, Costa Rica end their state of severe malnourishment. This malnourishment comes in the form of an obesity epidemic where 21% of children between the ages of 5 and 12 are overweight or obese and lack the proper nutrients needed to live healthy lifestyles and thrive.

CEPIA provides a safe haven for the children who are encouraged to be active members of their community and discover a way to live healthier lives through exercise and good nutrition. By supporting their nutrition program, we hope to work together to show children and their families the way to health and wellness.

When minds are determined and bodies are well-fed, there's no limit to the things children can do. With these initiatives and many others, we aim to make sure that there's a song in every heart and a healthy smile on every face.
