Social & Economic Development

Proyecto CocoMango seeks to develop social and economic resources for Laguna de Apoyo and its neighboring communities.  Within this area, our activities include:

Clean Drinking Water

Members of CocoMango are working with the Detroit Chapter of Engineers Without Borders to identify a solution for clean drinking water for the Laguna de Apoyo Community.

Coordination of Medical Brigade

CocoMango members periodically help organize visits by medical brigades to Laguna de Apoyo.  The visiting medical professionals – which have included dentists, gynecologists, pediatricians, general practitioners, etc – provide check-ups, tooth extractions, and necessary medicine to patients free of charge.

Laguna Sports

CocoMango promotes friendly sport and healthy lifestyles in Laguna de Apoyo.  Sports activities include a girls’ soccer team, Zumba class, and local soccer tournaments!

Sustainable rural tourism

This project has been initiated by the local community of the Laguna de Apoyo with the aim of sharing cultures and helping to build a sustainable economic and social development.
