Joining Forces to Make a Difference
For more than 14 years, the Estancia Santa Gertrudis Center has been providing shelter to children from high-risk social circumstances. The center is currently home to 42 children, thanks to the support of numerous benefactors, including the Municipality of Danlí, international aid and cooperation organizations, and representatives from the tobacco industry. The Center provides these children with a quality education, emotional support, balanced nutrition, and an opportunity to become valuable citizens in their community. This summer, a group of young volunteers from the Maya Selva Cigar family helped paint the school.
