Monteverde, a community that flourishes in solidarity.
Special thanks to our friends at Zona Alta Medios for producing this video. (For english, please activate subtitles in YouTube)
The Monteverde Hotel Solidarity Alliance was born with the purpose of supporting the community while it was going through an unprecedented socioeconomic crisis.
For six months, five hotels in the area allocated $1 for each visitor to a joint fund, which was channeled through the Monteverde Community Fund (MCF) and the Monteverde Institute and invested in social projects.
Thanks to this effort, the MCF was able to invest more than $4000 to strengthen the infrastructure of the Cerro Plano Community Garden and finance a second household survey in order to have updated data regarding the current situation of families in the area.
The Alliance represents the values of unity and solidarity that we celebrate in Monteverde, and shows us what can be achieved with collaboration between companies, organizations and the community.
We extend our sincere gratitude to these five hotels for their collaboration during this time. We would also like to invite local businesses and individuals in the area to reach out to the MCF with questions, suggestions or ideas. Our experiences show that together we can come up with the most effective ways to contribute to the well-being of the community. Meet the hotels:
