Who We Are
We envision a world where local communities are able to leverage the growth of, and access to, dynamic, emerging industries into economic and educational opportunities for their children, youth, and families.
BPP empowers children and youth in Latin America by providing supplementary schooling that instills creativity, enhances confidence, facilitates international communication, and develops critical thinking skills. At BPP, we Help a Child Grow.
Due to limited resources, many students in Latin America only attend school for half a day. The Barrio Planta Project (BPP) provides free supplementary schooling to the children of Latin America with the goal to give them positive recreation and supervised structure during the other half of their day.
In addition to classes, through volunteerism, students learn to interact with diverse populations within a positive setting that helps them healthily integrate into the rising tourism industry. Volunteers also share interests such as Gardening, Sports and Yoga with students through workshops and apprenticeship programs that enhance their exposure to a variety of subjects while helping them discover their unique skills and talents.
BPP currently operates schools in towns with tourism-based economies in and around the areas of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We bridge the gap between the growth of the tourism industry and the needs of the local population, so together we can utilize the newly arising opportunities and focus on the ultimate goal for a bright future: to Help a Child Grow.
