Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica 2010
Surf for Life builds a bridge and a basketball court in Puerto Viejo.
In 2010 and 2011 Surf For Life volunteer teams are heading to Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. Every scheduled week a new team of volunteers is helping hands-on with construction and community projects benefiting the children of Puerto Viejo and the indigenous BriBri tribe. Although Puerto Viejo thrives with tourism, many local families live under severe conditions. Apart from poverty, medical needs and illiteracy, the BriBri children have no way to attend Puerto Viejo’s schools regularly since the remote mountain paths leading to town are often impassable or flooded. Surf For Life is committed to helping volunteers participate in meaningful social and economic development projects designed to benefit the Bri Bri and the community of Puerto Viejo.
And now we need you to make them a reality!
Be part of this awesome opportunity to make a hands-on difference in the community of Puerto Viejo. Join us in the construction and remodeling of schools & community facilities, building bridges, maintaining trails and helping out with social services such as the local soup kitchen.
