Placencia Girls Football Club – A volunteer program for girls in the Placencia Community – we are volunteer coaches

 

Build-a-home project – Wild Orchid has built a home for some of their employees. We encourage all business-owners in Placencia to provide accommodations for their employees, whenever possible. The rent in Placencia is very expensive for local workers, so by providing them a home, we are helping them save their money, and invest it basic needs such as education, groceries, and clothing.
