Costa Rica on the back of strong resources, a stable government, and increasing tourism is becoming one of the more affluent countries in Central America. However, this is causing problems whereby citizens from neigbouring countries, such as Nicaragua, are immigrating into Costa Rica, causing an increase in unemployment, homelessness, and poverty. The aim of the childcare program, in which I will be working in, is to provide individual attention and assistance to children from difficult backgrounds in Costa Rica. Many children at the projects where volunteers work with children, do not receive the level of affection and education that they deserve and as a volunteer, I would play an important role in working alongside local staff to improve the educational, emotional, and hygiene conditions of the children.
My wish is for you to help me achieve my mission by donating any sum of money which can go towards my registration and program fee, materials and resources, and any other fees that may arise.
