Costa Rican Local Schools
Herencia Verde directly supports several Costa Rican elementary schools: Huetares, Escuela El Jaúuri, Las Esperanzas, and Las Brisas. Our groups are excited to see what a school looks like in another country, and the Costa Rican children appreciate meeting international students. When we visit these schools, our travelers often bring school supplies or other needed materials. The school typically offers a Costa Rican lunch, and the children perform traditional songs and dances. Upon returning to their home country, several groups have raised money for building repairs or donated essential materials to the schools. Without the support of Herencia Verde and our visiting groups, these rural schools might not be able to afford these necessary projects (like toilets, wells, and school supplies).
