The Niños del Arco Iris foundation provides underprivileged children from the Peruvian Andes highlands with education and (medical) care. The project also includes a hotel called 'Las Casitas del Arco Iris'. The proceeds of the hotel go entirely to the good cause.
Hoteliers.com is helping Las Casitas to receive more commission-free bookings by building a website and providing booking software free of charge. 'I am grateful to Hoteliers.com for their very generous donation,' says founding mother Helena van Engelen of Niños del Arco Iris. 'And with me all our Peruvian children. Mil Gracias!'

Education for children in Nicaragua
Hotel Con Corázon is an extraordinary hotel in Nicaragua, since they invest 100% of their profits in improving local schooling. Ever since the opening in 2008, hundreds of children have received a chance for a better future. Hotel Con Corazón literally means ‘with the heart’. The first hotel opened 10 years ago in Nicaragua, by two social entrepreneurs from The Netherlands. Besides their educational programs, they also stimulate the local economy by using regional products only. The hotel also serves as an educational centre for their employees, where they learn about working in hospitality.
Hoteliers.com has supported Hotel Con Corázon for years, by providing their booking software to the hotel in Granada, Nicaragua. “Even if it’s just a small contribution we’re making, this great initiative is very close to our hearts”, says Patrick Brand, Director of Business Development at Hoteliers.com.
