Help out at the only classified rural institution in the entire area of Escazu.
This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singoli
Coppie

In Costa Rica it is known that for local, rural schools the Ministry of Education does very little to of help due to low enrollment. It is for this reason that these schools are in need of motivated and ambitious volunteers.

These schools have many needs, some of them resulting in the lack of support they are receiving from the Government, hence there are many ways in which the school can be helped and supported

Amongst others, our goals for this project and its school are to create an area of ​​4m x 4m that needs to be constructed so students with learning disabilities can attend the school with their own facilities for learning and moving. Furthermore, the school is in need of sports equipment such as footballs, basketballs, tennis rackets, skipping/jump ropes and plastic cones. For this we need to organise and hold fundraisers. As well as we need financial support for sports equipment, the dining room is in need of new tables and chairs as the children have outgrown them and the quality since has deteriorated. 

The program is located in Escazu town and in Guanacaste Area, at a 5 minutes walk from the beach.

Typical day

Volunteers will assist in many tasks depending on their skills and the necessity at their time of stay:

  • serving food and cleaning the kitchen
