Developing Costa Rican Slums

Slums are neighborhoods where thousands of people live in abject poverty, separated by only tin walls. Young people who grow up surrounded by the oppressive helplessness of open sewage, scarce resources and little education face dramatic temptation to attempt to escape by choosing to make money through crime or illicit drug trade. Boy With a Ball's work has solved this problem by developing relational teams who walk into these communities to help youth walk into their dreams. project reportread updates from the field
Sponsor 40+ Low Income youth-Costa Rica to college

In a high risk community in SJ, CR (violence, drugs, poverty) where in 2007 there were no college students, we have been able to help 24 students to get into college and find jobs. College graduates in Costa Rica have an 80% more chance to get a job than the ones that do not have a college education and that leads them out of poverty. This program pays for youth's college education and makes sure they have weekly mentoring from professionals and friends so that they can make it out of poverty. project reportread updates from the field
