    Testimonies Meet our participants and their success stories with our collaborators Merry Elizondo "In Árbol de Esperanza I have empowered myself as a woman and as an entrepreneur" Marilyn Chinchilla "Árbol de Esperanza was my unconditional support in a hard moment in my life because only they understood what was happening to me and thus they could help me to get ahead and empower me and tell me, that if I can get ahead I'm important and I can fight for what I want and I deserve (...) I learned to value myself and love myself as I am". Sandra Osorio "It is a personalized program that helps restore self-esteem by restoring faith in oneself (...) it was a unique experience to be able to count on that unconditional support at the right time because humanity does not discriminate against sex, religion or race, (...) They took my hand and told me you're not alone, we're going to walk together until you can do it on your own again and best of all, they didn't let me go until they made sure that if I fell I had the strength to get up again".

  • READY TO EMPOWER | Árbol de Esperanza

    Foundation Ready to Empower Our founder Amanda Ready met a community of women in Costa Rica whom she found unemployed, with low education, without adequate medical care, living in poverty and victims of violence without long-term support. Having experience working in social services and in the mental health field, Amanda began offering mental health therapy to women to learn about their emotional challenges. After many sessions with the women, Amanda learned that not only mental health support was needed but also food, clothing, health, education and employment opportunities. Amanda spent the next three months in Costa Rica building relationships, gaining trust, creating programs, and empowering leaders who would carry out her vision and eventually execute daily operations. Upon her return to the United States, Amanda was READY to EMPOWER and founded Ready to Empower (RTE) in 2013 and in 2014 RTE was granted tax-exempt status (501c3). In addition, Amanda created Arbol de Esperanza, an organization based in Costa Rica to work in connection with RTE to empower the community. The creation of Tree of Hope became the first partnership to continue to be guided and supported by Ready to Empower. Tree of Hope stands out as Ready to Empower's pilot model as they seek to expand into other poverty-stricken communities around the world. Follow us on social media!
