GEOPARADISE 

 

A platform for the indigenous people of the world

CEIBA Leaf is partnering with GeoParadise, a US-based public charity that works with native communities throughout the world to preserve their cultural identity, creating a cooperative network for resource sharing, and facilitating the connection between communities in need and those with the resources and skills to help.

CEIBA Leaf manages several volunteer programs designed to help GeoParadise achieve its charitable mission and also provides funds for its various indigenous outreach and poverty relief endeavors.

 

OUR SOURCE OF INSPIRATION

 

TRIBAL GATHERING

Unity Through Diversity

 

Since 2013, GeoParadise have annually organized a one-of-a-kind international eco-cultural event called Tribal Gathering, which represents by far its most remarkable charitable activity, where 60 native tribes from 30 countries come together to share their knowledge with each other, artists, teachers and attendees from all over the world during 18 days on a beautiful remote Caribbean beach in the north coast of Panama.

It features around 200 workshops and presentations, hundreds of musicians from around the world, a learning journey from the ancient to the modern and one of the worlds most important indigenous cultural celebrations.... But things dont stop here! With the donations collected from Tribal Gathering participants, GeoParadise runs outreach programs throughout the year with the tribes in attendance. 

Tribal Gathering is also a cooperative platform where projects are inspired and we all get the chance to involve ourselves in this creative process. The company behind Ceiba Leaf has co-produced this world-class event with GeoParadise from the start, acting as the host, permit holder and ambassador of GeoParadise in Panama.... and we are well proud of it! :)

Calling all travelers heading to Central America for the summer season !!

We are currently offering 6 ongoing volunteer programs for travelers to enroll in, ranging from 2 weeks to 1 month from June to September, with the possibility to extend your stay on a week rate basis.  No previous experience, skill or knowledge are needed to be part of our programs, only a strong determination to learn, share and lend a hand to make Earth a better home for all her inhabitants.

It's really not enough if we are just posting our discontent in social media, if we want to see things getting better is up to all of us to stand up and go get our hands dirty and take a positive action towards building solutions to the problems our planet is facing today. Here is one of the ways to do it while having fun and traveling the Caribbean coast and jungles of Panama... 

From helping the neighbor indigenous village of El Progreso to get their water system repaired to building a community center or creating social and environmental awareness programs for the region... you can learn new skills, meet other dedicated travelers and passionate activists, feel accomplished and rewarded by the gratitud and hospitality of the local community and reconnect and reground with the breath-taking nature around CEIBA Leaf Campus.
