Lush rainforests, beautiful beaches, and mountain volcanoes make Costa Rica a popular tourist destination. With much to explore, Costa Rica is an eco-adventurer’s dream come true! But regular tourists don’t get to see an often-hidden side of Costa Rica. Just outside the capital city of San José is the suburb of Alajuelita. Outside that suburb is a small migrant community of people who piece together houses with scraps and garbage they find throughout the city.
Many years ago, our local ministry partner was stirred into action. He recruited a couple of church contacts and began to build simple and well-built homes for those who are truly in need. Just as on our Guanacaste trips, we’re involved with the local church in San José while we serve, and the church maintains a long-term relationship with the families after we build their new home, to ensure our impact is truly helpful and sustainable.
