Dear amigos con corazón (friends with a heart),

It’s been way too long since you've heard from us... And we have a lot to share!

We have taken the liberty to include all our donors, investors,lenders, and more friends and acquaintances in the mailing list of this Newsletter. We thought you would appreciate to be kept informed. If not, our apologies, you can unsubscribe from this newsletter via the unsubscribe button at the bottom.

So much has happened in the meantime, too much to mention. Therefore we will only give you a few highlights of the things we are working on. In short: we are busy and going well!

We hope you enjoy the read, 

Erica Donkers, Saskia Fiselier, Marcel Zuidhof

Terrain acquired

A dream has come true. The terrain we have been looking at for years, and which remained our favorite no matter how many other properties we saw, is now ours! Purchased last December, with invaluable support from lawyer Clement Werre and notary office Pigmans Ras Janssen in the Netherlands, and law firm Sequelis & Associates in Mexico. An oasis of 550 m2, in the middle of the city. Lots of green, with a beautiful old jacaranda tree as an eye-catcher. Right now, the derelict buildings are being demolished, after which the foundation will be laid.

Working on Design

After a few weeks of inching and pinching to fit everything in, and in great collaboration with the architect’s team of Root Studio in Oaxaca, we now got our optimal design. Now it’s a matter of fine-tuning, determining the look & feel (contemporary, but certainly with Mexican charm and warm colors) and selecting materials. Keywords: inviting patios, comfortable rooms, excellent service and a place to feel at home. Imagine yourself there, enjoying a cold Corona after a hot day of exploring the city and surroundings, while at the same time contributing to a good cause. Sounds wonderful, right?

Funding? Arranged

No April Fools' Day joke! Our funding is arranged: we achieved our target of 550,000 euros. Thanks to you, our amazing supporters who believe in us, who know the Hotel con Corazón concept works, and who contributed with donations, loans or became a shareholder. Without you, we would never have succeeded. You will be our amigos con corazón forever!

Education: research

Remember, the profit we will make with the hotel, will go to education for children and adolescents in the region. We are busy doing research on where your and our money will be best spent. We are currently making inquiries with various parties in Oaxaca – governmental authorities, NGO’s and private individuals – to get a well-founded picture of the problem. One of the issues that regularly comes up, is the low number of students in high school. Only 35% of Oaxaca’s young population attends or finishes high school. In rural areas, dropout is also high among primary school students. This is not a good basis for the socioeconomic future of Oaxaca and its youth. And it’s exactly to that future Hotel con Corazón wants to contribute.
