YouTube Video

Mission Statement 
    The Kids 4 Our World International Ambassador Program provides teens the opportunity to give back to their community, create awareness of global warming, endangered species, and Eco-friendly technologies. This program's driving force is the belief that "You don't have to be an adult or famous to make a difference in the world". Our mission is to create global responsible citizens that make a positive impact in our world for future generations.

Purpose
    The K4OW International Ambassadors will plant trees in the rainforest of Central America (northern zone of Costa Rica) to decrease the effects of global warming and restore the nearly 90% of tropical Rainforest that has been lost. Through these efforts we will be providing oxygen and reducing the effects of global warming while protecting the native species of plants and animals. Furthermore, we will be educating local indigenous children to maintain the rainforest, create awareness and care for their environment for generations to come.

Project
    Partnered with La Reserva Forest Foundation, the Kids 4 Our World International Ambassadors will raise funds to physically plant 1,600 trees in Costa Rica to offset the effects of global warming, and protect the Howler, Spider, and White Faced Monkeys. Furthermore, this project will introduce an Eco-friendly technology such as the "Soccket Ball" to the native Maleku Indians. This innovative technology will combine the popular sport of soccer and humanitarian efforts to provide much needed electricity for Native Maleku Indians while teaching and creating awareness of the importance of protecting our environment for future generations.
