Shelter Home for Children

Orphans, street kids, and other at-risk children in Costa Rica and Panama are in need of love, care, and support!

There are many organizations that provide shelter for these children for short or long periods. We are allowed to provide volunteers in some of these shelters.  Homework assistance, organizing sports, arts and crafts and teaching English are tasks that volunteers can undertake.
