La Tortuga Viva runs exclusively on donations and is entirely volunteer-run
With an annual budget of approximately $15,000, we currently have no paid positions within the camp, making this work even more challenging.
The biggest portion of our budget goes toward monthly food baskets for our volunteers, which they receive in exchange for their service. These food basket support some of the poorest members of the community. They are a necessity for most of these families -- some members of the camp are unemployed and rely on this food basket to make ends meet and to feed themselves and their families.
To have more impact in the community, it is crucial for us to increase our budget.
Every little bit helps! Whether it's $5, $10, or $200, every amount adds up and supports our work.
