We received a visit from a person very dear to ISOP, who was part of the projects in past years. Sander Bos, Physiotherapist, adventurer and athlete, shares with us in the practice and activities of the ISOP projects these days.

In addition, he organized a campaign on social networks, with his family and friends, to raise money and buy materials for the different ISOP projects. Now we have better tools to work in Hydrotherapy, and in visits to educational centers or to the homes of children in our programs! Thanks for everything Sander!!

Last month we had to say goodbye to two exceptional volunteers, who accompanied us for 2 and a half months. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts for their motivation, professionalism, constant good humor and for all the moments shared together. Now they are part of the ISOP family, and always welcomed !

Good return home Annerens and Esther !

We received a request from one of the educational centers of the Turrialba area, to work with their students. Stress and academic demands have a negative impact on students and teachers. Our ISOP team carried out a talk activity and workshops to educate these students about managing emotional burdens and how physical activity and exercise can prevent Burn-Out syndrome.

After our legalization as an Association in Costa Rica and a company with a SME certificate, we dedicated time to give our logo a new image. With the help of a great friend and artist from Turrialba, MALAKO, we were able to bring each of the ISOP letters to life, defining our intentions to grow, respect nature, help others, and promote social, occupational, and professional inclusion.
