Sarapiquí Stories

March 14, 2012

The community of Sarapiquí is thankful for the many volunteers who are choosing to come and share their gifts of knowledge. 

Cassandra and Rachel are students doing their health internship in the small rural community of San Miguel. It is amazing how, unknowingly, they have already contributed to our community just by sharing their eating habits and daily exercise routines, teaching us how to better use our local food groups. They are in the process of setting up information about better health and food practices for school-age children in the area.

We are also thankful for the volunteer efforts of the Peace Corps, whose programs empower local community members.

Sarapiquí offers many successful, locally run programs if you are tired of traveling without a purpose or want to donate your gift of knowledge.
