Technical Education

In order to assist residents of the communities that are beyond high school age and those high school students who do not attend university, Creciendo Juntos has built a training center with four classrooms. Through a partnership with the National Training Institute (INA) over the past seventeen years, a wide range of employment training has been provided for these residents.

As the Formal Education Program developed, it became evident that performance in education and health are closely linked. In partnership with the Costa Rican Department of Social Security (CCSS) we opened a first clinic in March 2011 and a second one on July 2021, in Costa Rica’s northwest Guanacaste region.

Providing healthcare to rural communities has been a longstanding challenge for the Costa Rican government. Poor infrastructure and lack of funds has limited access to medical care for thousands of Costa Ricans living in isolated neighborhoods. As a result, many people go years without consulting a doctor and fall ill with diseases that could be prevented if they had received prior care. Few kids ever see a doctor for a simple checkup or for a minor illness, preferring to wait until their condition either improves or becomes weak.
