Summary

School kids from deprived communities in Costa Rica urgently need meaningful support to help them to overcome the challenges and trials they face every day. And that has increased tenfold in times of the pandemic. The support needs to address their psychological and socioeconomic needs and be sensitive to their cultural environment. Areas were support is crucial are nutrition, tutoring, arts and music. Also, a safe and caring environment to help them to become self-sufficient and self-fulfilled.

Challenge

Children from one of the most deprived communities in Costa Rica are challenged every day to do better in school, to get healthy meals, develop emotional skills and gain a healthy self-perception for future self-sufficiency. They lack a safe place to study, to play and to learn as their socioeconomic and cultural environment is less than appropriate to do so.

Solution

Your donation will help at-risk children to get a meaningful education. Using creative, playful arts-based methods we offer : Tutoring in Spanish and Math. Arts and music workshops. 3 meals daily and encourage healthy eating habits. Psychosocial counselling to help them with their daily challenges. A safe place to learn principles for meaningful and equal relationships. Lessons to care for the planet and other species. Parent-teacher workshops to promote a caring child rising.

Long-Term Impact

Children with a meaningful education have more opportunities to become fulfilled adults that are emotionally, socially and economically independent. This approach to education breaks the vicious cycle of poverty and positively impacts the community.
