The Resource Foundation

Fundación Origen

Fundación Origen is a nonprofit organization, founded in 1991, that is dedicated to holistic social transformation through education and agroecology.

Its main projects include the Pirque Agroecological School, the Natural Sanctuary Los Maitenes, the Origen Farmers Market, The Bodhisattva training and the Virginia Subercaseaux School. In times of need or disaster, Origen activates its relief programs for food and housing. All of these initiatives are interrelated and share the objective of providing concrete tools for generating individual, social and environmental transformation. 

Origen credits its growth as an organization to its open and compassionate response to a changing world, its commitment and deep care for all living beings and willingness to engage in horizontal dialogue with several stakeholders across multiple projects. Each year, Origen directly impacts 600 children and thousands of families through all its programs and, thereby contributing to a more peaceful and equitable world.
