When you donate to the Murphyn Henar Foundation you are helping Bonaire’s future. Your donation directly ensures an education and a professional future for local young adults, who will be able to provide for his or her family upon completion of this program. By having more local people on the island involved with the underwater world, we teach and reinforce a love and respect for nature. This also instills a deeper sense of pride for Bonaire and it’s natural resources, and the importance of the community’s involvement and responsibility to continue to protect it. All of these values help and strengthen the vision of Bonaire to be and to remain a Blue Destination.

Big or small, any amount you wish to donate is very appreciated and will be used to help purchase student materials, provide instruction and begin the scuba diving journey from Zero to Hero for selected Candidates.
