In January, during a family holiday in Costa Rica, we headed up the mountains to San Gerardo des Rivas to visit the Costa Rica Proyecto. Another great project supported by Rose Charities Canada.
I had a wonderful visit and feel most fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet Jenny Moss and find out about the marvelous things that the Proyecto is accomplishing: ESL programs, both with individuals and classes; a Sunday Farmers Market; a community website for tourists and visitors to learn about this lovely town; a preschool program and a café to train aspiring chefs and bakers and service people, among others.
In addition my family had a terrific time visiting San Gerardo des Rivas; we will never forget fishing for our trout dinner and my five year old Isaiah grandson’s joy at catching three of our five fish!
