Summary

With few economic opportunities and subsistence agriculture as the main occupation, Santa Juana as many rural villages are losing their populations as the young people migrate to the bigger towns, causing family disintegration and other related problems. This project intends to create more jobs, update the community water system, improve the medical examination room and build a computer lab for the school. This will improve the quality of living and will discourage emigration.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The pressures facing Costa Rica's rural villages and communities are both cultural and economic challenges. With few economic opportunities and subsistence agriculture as the main occupation, many rural villages are losing their populations as the young people migrate to the bigger towns and cities, causing family disintegration and other related problems. Teenagers and young people lacking parental guidance could get in drugs or early pregnancies.

How will this project solve this problem?

Employment options are still limited for the majority of the residents and this forces many people in the community to leave. A thorough assessment of the community situation was conducted and some immediate needs were established: 1. More jobs need to be created. 2. The community water system needs to be updated and improved. 3. The medical examination room needs to be improved in order to meet minimum hygienic requirements. 4. A Computer Lab for the primary school needs to be build

Potential Long Term Impact

By maintaining families together, by building a community where education and health services are available we are hoping to discourage emigration. Children that don't need to leave their families, to attend school or follow on medical services, are healthier and happier kids. Children need loving parental guidance. We are also hoping to create better and more jobs in this community, that will allow young people to stay and make a healthy income.
