In October 2014, The Pura Vida Foundation was invited to St. Jerome’s University to do a series of talks and a fundraiser. It was so special to see a community of amazing students dedicated in social change. Since 2009 The Pura Vida Foundation and St. Jerome’s University have had an incredible partnership. They help us tremendously in our goal to help exploited and abused young girls off the streets of Peru. They also are involved in helping us with certain projects in some of the most impoverished communities in the Andean mountains.
