Mission to Costa Rica is a family-run nonprofit organization with the goal of reaching the needs of migrant Nicaraguan families during annual coffee harvest (October to February) through its preschool and assistance with food, medicine, hygiene, clothing, and education.
Mission to Costa Rica serves in a community west of Atenas, Costa Rica, where coffee is the primary economic driver. Annual coffee harvests bring in Nicaraguans seeking work at the coffee farms. Migrants have little to no rights in Costa Rica nor any access to social services. Often times, children are left alone while parents work in the fields.
This site shares the journey of the family running the organization as well as advocating for the families in need.
