Partnership with The Neighborhood House Charter School
"O2 For Life provides an invaluable service in organizing
educational trips to Costa Rica for inner city children. These
children have limited exposure to other cultures and environments.
The trip to the rainforest of
Costa Rica enables them to see how they fit in the world order and educates
them as future citizen of the world. Many thanks to O2 For Life
and its supporters for providing our children with a very important
The Neighborhood House Charter School
We strive to keep the cost of our education program affordable because we want
to host students from all social and economic backgrounds. Still, programs
like ours remain essentially out of reach for many children from inner cities
or other economically depressed areas. Simply put, those children would never
get the opportunity to participate in such faraway, exotic educational field
trips unless they received some level of subsidy.
To that effect, O2 For Life started the "Costa Rica Initiative" in
partnership with the
House Charter School (NHCS), an inner city school located in
Since 2004, groups of 8th grade students from the NHCS have spent
a week at the reserve. The foundation fully subsidizes their stay. It also
works hand in hand with the school to help the students raise the funds needed
for travel costs.
We derive much pride from this collaborative effort and we look forward to
continuing our partnership with the NHCS for many years to come.
As our financial resources grow we will seek to establish similar
partnerships with other schools.
