LIFE AND LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

Our goal is to empower people using cognitive and practical tools to disrupt and destroy the intergenerational cycles of poverty.

mariposa2

COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION

We seek to address, facilitate, engage and bring creative solutions to the many serious issues affecting high risk and impoverished communities.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Our concern is for the poor, fatherless, single mothers, widows, homeless, prostitutes and all who are at high social risk and vulnerability.

In 2012 Barrio (Neighbourhood) Sinai was declared by the government as the community with the most pregnant teenage mothers in the nation of Costa Rica. This pronouncement is based on the statistic that eight babies were born that year to resident mothers aged16 years and under. Additionally a myriad of serious social issues affect hundreds of the local women and children. These include extreme poverty due to unemployment or low $3-$4 per hour salaries, housing shortages, drug and alcohol addictions, physical and emotional abuse, criminal activity, violence, prostitution, discrimination and insecure status due to illegal immigration. Our focused efforts on salvation and prevention programs are bringing impact and transformation.

TESTIMONY

MARIA

A graduate of our first one-year Sewing Skill Development Program, Maria’s story is a great inspiration to all.   After much perseverance, this 36-year old Nicaraguan immigrant, mother of 8 children (including a 16 yr. old mother of a 2 year old) and 4 grandchildren, produced enough products to sell in our Entrepreneurial Women´s fairs to graduate with a sewing machine she proudly earned.  In February, she reported, “This is the first year I did not have to beg and knock on doors to figure out how to put my kids in school.  I sew until late everyday for my neighbors and with the earnings I was able to buy uniforms, shoes and school supplies to send all my kids to the new school year.”   Life is not easy for María and her children but she continues to persevere and dream for a better future for her household.
