  • Description

    Description

    We are a Christian organization with a children's home and feeding centers in rural Costa Rica. We are located in the mountains in the town of Santa Maria de Dota two hours drive from the San Jose airport. Our zone produces some of the world's best coffee and 90% of our local economy is based on the production of coffee. Many of the children whom we serve are the children of indigenous migrant workers.
