Impact Story

The local community of Puerto Jimenez is a largely rural, agricultural society with publicly funded basic education, comprising a workforce of moderately educated people. While the local service economy provides some employment opportunities, the majority of employment in this area is the tourist industry.

The social fabric of the community is based on the extended family, where members often live and work together. Low wages and the seasonal nature of many jobs in this area require that families multi-generationally work to economically survive . Many local people are forced to live with their futures dimmed by the lack of high quality education and limited employment opportunities.
