expand your neighborhood in costa rica

The natural beauty of Costa Rica attracts many visitors who never realize the overwhelming needs of the children in this emerging nation.

Your team will partner with a local church to define a need in their community. Past teams have built concrete sport courts, sidewalks, or drainage projects, while working in local public schools and government kindergartens.

At that same church, your team will share the love of God through a Bible Club for children.

Why we love serving jesus in this neighborhood

We get to look after the orphan (James 1:27). Our ministry partners connect vulnerable children with caring families in local churches.
