    For a long time, they have organized courses for women who want to improve themselves, among them: dressmaking courses, the art of cocktails and even voiceovers, animation and DJs.In its almost 6 years of being founded, Jacó Impact has changed the way of thinking and acting of a large part of the people who live in the coastal town (Jacó).

    Ureña has led activities in areas such as: Environmental (with cleaning of beaches and rivers), cigarette butt collection campaigns and recycling workshops). So much so, that they have made surfboards out of plastic butts and plugs, how about that?

    They have been advancing with La Ruta de Ensueño + English classes for children (free) + Fairs with the group of Entrepreneurs of Garabito. “We have our community center open receiving and delivering donations at the Food Bank and our Animal Welfare pillar is now taking cases daily and removing animals at risk, mistreatment, etc,” added YorginaUreña.

    The leader of Jacó Impact, as Yor is also called, said that currently “adults let’s be an example and educate our children to throw away less and recycle more. There are many easy actions to start with, I always invite you to carry your cloth bag to the supermarket”.
