Doka Day Care, Costa Rica

Education plays a crucial role in small communities development.

Many Nicaraguan migrants come to Costa Rica each harvesting season to work in coffee estates. In order to help ensure a safe and child-labor free environment for their children, a daycare is opened for their kids from November through March. Workshops, a Christmas celebration and the service of a medical brigade are other activities offered. Also, the day care is being provided with kitchen equipment, desks, chairs, toys and crafty materials. The kids also receive three meals a day and are always supervised by a care taker of the community.
