GeoParadise works with native communities to preserve their cultural identity, create a cooperative network for resource sharing, and facilitate the connection between communities in need and those with the resources and skills to help.
Through indigenous representative groups, we reach out to communities, offering assistance to address current needs. We encourage the communities to propose projects, implementing them if they are in line with our charitable goals. Our goal is to provide basic necessities and education, promote the arts and engage skillful volunteers.
We aim to develop programs which will have a lasting effect, creating long term leverage within the communities they serve. These programs are primarily run by GeoParadise and its volunteers, although we do work in cooperation with other non-profit organizations, schools, and foundations.
Based in Panama, we operate programs in several indigenous territories and communities within the country. We also have programs in Costa Rica and Guatemala, and this year we are starting projects for communities in Brazil, Mexico, Colombia and Peru, with the intention of moving into other neighboring territories in the future.
