Imagine using the favorite sport of the nation to turn the hearts of children and families toward God. That is the goal of Kids of Costa Rica! Using two former team Costa Rica international soccer players as our coaches, Hacia Lo Major Academia de Fútbol was born. Our soccer academy now has 200 children enrolled. Many of our students are brought to us by a single parent, a grandparent, or a legal guardian. We have many cases of children with parents in prison, prostitution, or addicted to drugs and/or alcohol.
Each week these children are divided into appropriate age categories as they are taught Christian values and ethics as soccer is used as the medium to do so. Our students are monitored with our staff, that includes nutritionists, physical therapists, medical doctors, education specialists, and tutors, as well as spiritual advisors. The guardians of the children in the academy have agreed to participate in monthly child development and family development classes where Christ is the central focus.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITH KIDS OF COSTA RICA.
Your current gifts will help us place more children in the soccer academy, purchase building materials, build the infrastructure for Kids of Costa Rica, as well as staff our expand our reach to more children of Costa Rica. Our financial partners are equally as important as those who serve on a foreign field. Without faithful people and churches that are willing to invest in eternity by giving to missions, it would be impossible to transform the lives of these children for all eternity.
