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 with 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. Since that time, they have been able to complete Children’s Homes, Daycare, Professional Consultation Offices and Life-Skills Workshops, where they provide training to help people learn specific skills that will facilitate finding a job or starting a small business. Some of the classes that are offered include English, computers, artisan crafts, manicure/pedicure, cooking and sewing.
Abraham Project in Costa Rica
UNO+ is located in the small beach village Esterillos Oeste, in the Central Pacific of Costa Rica, approximately 2 hours from the capital San José. This NGO started in January 2013 and aims to help the most vulnerable. The goal is to have "better children for the world" by transforming the children and families in this community through education workshops, lessons, tutoring, etc.
We are helping this team to start to build a technical school in Limon2000. They saw the need of higher education in their small town. Julio Abarco with his wife are the main leader of this project. They get the support of a local lawyer couple.
This technical school will teach many different jobs, as well as English so students can work as local tourist guides later.
