Helping the Economy

Ana Julia is starting a business making breakfasts and lunches "to go" in a small place she rents in the community of Huacas, Guanacaste. Currently she only has a little gas stove and would like to have a microwave oven and an industrial blender to make natural fruit drinks to accompany the meals of teachers and young people who are her customers, since her place is located very close to a school. Ana Julia is a single mother, entrepreneur. Let's help her bring local and healthy food to her neighborhood, generating income to support her family.

Costa Rica Project

In 2014, All For One Foundation partnered with CEPIA (Culture, Education, and Psychology for Infants and Adolescents) in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Our partnership helped to make improvements to the community center to allow for continued hosting of various programs and provide assistance to children/teenagers in need and their families. In 2018, we also supported four different girls’ clubs that help to educate and empower vulnerable girls living in poverty or high-risk situations.

In 2018, All For One partnered with CEPIA to fund three girls’ clubs. In 2020, AFO continued the efforts and again partnered with CEPIA to fund another girls’ club. We intend to expand the program, recruit more psychologists to make a greater impact in more communities, and resume activities soon.
