Originally a fishing village, through agriculture Punta Colonet grew to a community of approximately 4,000 people. The majority of people in Colonet work in fields picking tomatoes, peppers, onions, etc. Workers earn approximately $16 a day and often work 12 hours in a shift.
Our mission for Punta Colonet is both to strengthen and empower families and to strategically invest in its emerging generation.
We are building a learning /daycare center to provide support for the hard-working parents of Punta Colonet. Presently we are constructing our main facility which will house our offices, storage, commercial kitchen, classrooms, cafeteria, gathering space, library, apartment for interns, and an apartment for our Buena Onda manager. Once we complete our building we will be able to open the doors to the community and begin to see the impact we have been dreaming for. We need your support to finish the construction.
