Giving Back


What’s your passion?  What drives you? 

Education has always been one of our passion: you learn something new everyday.  Our focus is on educating and enriching the lives of elementary children. We encourage guests to bring school supplies, bag, books or educational toys and dads if they have extra luggage space.  Email us if you have questions about what to bring.  

We have partnered with the Principal/Teacher of Zion Park Elementary School.  Her passion and dedication to her profession and to the children is obvious and overwhelming.  Guests always have the opportunity to visit the school themselves and experience the difference one person can make.

If you are not visiting Maruba and want to make a positive educational change, we encourage you to check with the principal of the public school in the area you will visit.  Your assistance to make a positive change will be greatly appreciated and an inspiration.


We personally thank all our guests who have brought educational supplies, visited on volunteer vacations and supported our program in any way. Thank you for your support and generosity.  Your kinds and commitment is an inspiration to us.  


There are several ways to give back and make a difference with us or at home!  Here is what we are doing.
