COSTA RICA


  • What: A collaborative short-term program with a local ministry helping at-risk children and youth affected by poverty and violence

  • Where: Jaco: a city on the Pacific Coast

  • When: Summer 2010

  • About: Jaco is a popular city for international tourists however, with the increase of foreign money comes tragic by-products: increased human trafficking and the marginalization of displaced people. We led a team of volunteers from our church in California and partnered with a local ministry striving to address these issues.
