The project is located in Villas de Ayarco, which is an outlying community of Tres Rios, Cartago, Costa Rica, which is only about 25 minutes from the capital San José. This project, designed to reach out to the hurt and lost, was initiated by a few local Costa Rican people and very little money. It has since grown into a major effort as more people have joined to complete the task at hand.
In 1998-99, money to purchase approximately 2.4 acres of land was raised locally in Costa Rica with none of the money coming from stateside sources. Construction on Phase I of the Abraham Project was initiated in February 2002. A crew of local people was hired to begin the construction work. The tedious work of digging footers and pouring foundations was under way. Since that time, they have been able to complete Children’s Homes, Daycare, Professional Consultation Offices and Life-Skills Workshops.
The monumental task of raising the necessary funds to initiate construction of the roof for the Multipurpose Building is underway. Once the roof is completed, construction of Phase I of the Abraham Project will official be complete.
