The impact you will make


Community Improvements (Terraba)

Community Project (Terraba)


The indigenous communities of Central America have missed out on much of the economic development of the region. Terraba is the only local community not to have a communal area for families to gather and prepare food in a hygenic environment. You will be assisting in the building of a community kitchen which will be used by numerous community groups.


Wildlife Protection (Caño Negro)

Wildlife Protection (Cano Negro)

Though Costa Rica accounts for only 0.03% of the earth’s surface, it holds 6% of the world’s biodiversity. However, the diverse flora, fauna and animal species are under threat from human activity. Your work here will help to protect the local wildlife through conservation efforts with the community.
