Study for our Planet

Study for our planet: you can donate 2.5% of you tuition fee to projects that our community proposes.

Now, many years after starting our first Spanish School in Bocas del Toro,  we have decided it’s time to do something different with our earnings, something for the future of all of us and our planet.  Getting to know lots of people with good ideas for small projects but with little financial aid, created the idea to use a small part of your payments to benefit these plans. It is something like “1% for the planet” but is a total in-house production!

Our community is made up of present and former students, employees, acquaintances and other people with connections to Spanish at Locations |Costa Rica & Panama.

Donations will be generated by 2.5% of the tuition fee that you can designate to any of the projects that we will be offering as options.

So if you are a student signing up through this website, be aware that you can set aside 2.5% of your tuition fee for one of the projects that will be listed here. You can get more information about each project by writing us.

If you are part of our community and have a project that is beneficial to the future of the planet and you need funds, you can become a recipient of donations through Spanish at Locations| Costa Rica & Panama.

List of requirements for your project to become a recipient of donations:
