COSTA RICA PROJECTS
ABOUT OUR COSTA RICA PROJECTS
Community Collaborations International provides all food, lodging, volunteer project coordination, a full time bilingual guide, in-country transportation, travel emergency medical insurance, support of project partners, and a recreation activity. Our Costa Rica Project works with community partners to determine where volunteers are most needed. We then provide volunteers to support local communities in creating sustainable projects that bring income to poor rural communities, support local education and improve the environment. Projects include school and housing construction, recycling projects, clean water projects, work with local artisans, educational projects with local youth, and health related projects.
