Enhancing the Community in Costa Rica

Why we need your help


Help Upscale the Community through Education in rural Costa Rica  

Project Summary 

This community has limited funding and faces many challenges, socially and economically. This project focuses on empowering and supporting the local community of El Cocal to tackle social and economic challenges and help implement solutions, designed by them. Solutions include infrastructure, minority inclusion, alternative income generation, education, healthy habits and conservation.

The Challenge

El Cocal is located close to the tourism hub of Manuel Antonio. This drives the cost of living up & has a huge impact on already marginalized communities. High levels of immigration result in huge cultural differences and high unemployment, substance abuse and general despondency. This is a hard place to live, most often especially for children. Limited funding for schools means school are only open for 1/2 days. There are very few safe spaces for both children and adults to gather, play & learn

The Solution

This project works to support, empower and train our local partners as well as provide critical funding to allow this community to work together and build on the infrastructure to allow the local community to grow, develop education and work to create income driven projects to become self sustainable.

Long Term Impact 

Working closely with the local partners we can ensure we empower them through training and vital funding to build the infrastructure in the community allowing them to promote a sustainable future that includes local income generation and increased access to quality education.
