Overview Sports training at schools in Esparza, Costa Rica

If the budget is tight, the first subject Costa Rica’s schools will cut is sports training and physical education. Especially in rural areas like Esparza, schools are not well-funded and children often have various responsibilities outside of school. Therefore the project offers them the chance to continue practicing sports in an organized environment. The local community and educational institutions support the project. That is why there are various and flexible ways to get involved!
