UpTica Through Time

Gender inequality in Costa Rica leads to unbalanced work dynamics and limited opportunities for women in rural areas of Costa Rica. We at UpTica want to close the gap of gender inequality by empowering communities and guiding them to create independent and sustainable economies.

Pollution is a threat, the world knows it. We at UpTica want to do something about it. By encouraging communities to reduce plastic consumption and practice upcycling we are making a positive impact through sustainable consumption.
