What We Do
Costa Rica is a beautiful nation located in Central America. Many natural resources and world-class beaches fill the landscape of this tropical country; however, this beauty is overshadowed by the darkness for many in the capital city of San Jose. San Jose’s streets flow with life during the day but many children are left living in this city’s dangerous streets alone. Drugs, gangs, crime, and prostitution are just some of the dangers that threaten the children who live in the most marginalized areas.
Kids of Costa Rica seeks to partner with churches as well as individuals to help rescue these children from the streets through the sport that is the passion of the nation, soccer. The Hacia Lo Major soccer academy has already begun to attract these children from the streets and give them a positive and faith-filled future.
The Costa Rica Connection
Kids of Costa Rica has partnered with Doctor Jonathan Calderón Chavarria, Pastor Geovanny Calderón and his congregation El Tabernaculo located in San Sabastián, Costa Rica. These friendships and their connections have made the dream of rescuing the children of Costa Rica a reality. Kids of Costa Rica heavily depend on Costa Rican nationals to carry out the daily mission of transforming the lives of these marginalized children.
