Located in the San Ramon Canton of Alajuela Province, Jaurri has benefited from a number of inspired principals, school boards, grandparents and teachers. Ecoteach’s involvement came through a former principal, Juan Bautista Castro Chavez who now operates the organic education project Finca Educativa Don Juan.
For the last few years EcoTeach Foundation has facilitated major donations from Canines for Kids in Albany New York.

NEXT / PREVIOUS PROJECT
Even by Costa Rican standards, Jauuri (how-ree) School is is a great school and that's because it's a team effort, staff, community and supporters.
It rains a lot!
Canines 4 Kids in Albany New York funded covered walkways.
Due to the porch and poor lighting the rooms are dark, the kitchen/dinning room has now windows.
Costa Rican schools are very clean. Breasfast & lunch are served every day.
The kids, the children, the students, this. after all is why we're interested, they are the future we are responsible for. The uniforms remind us that in the eyes of the world they are all equal, one hour in any of the schools we support reminds us of what a wonderful time our youth can be and renews hope.
Each year we send a request for a "wish list" to the schools in Costa Rica. Both large needs and classroom supplies. We ask again for the "dream list" which takes a bit more consideration.
Please note: If you would like to contribute towards the purchase of one or more of these items send a check to the following address and in the comment space designate the item(s):

If your planning to bring items down, let us know so we don't duplicate!
square chalk sticks
double sided tape
scissors for small kids
left handed scissors
colored dry erase markers
adhesive vinyl rolls
water based paints
clear liquid glue
card stock paper
Please note: All large projects include a major contribution from the community that the school serves. Sometimes labor is all they have to give but the community and parents are vested!
The big project for this year is a playground swing set. For younger children, playing together is learning how to share!
Parents of children are also expected to supply clean uniforms every day, backpacks with the basics (notebooks, pencils, pens rulers..). At Staples in Costa Rica this would cost about $50, beyond what most can afford!
Each year we send a request for a "wish list" (RFP on foundation terms:) to the schools in Costa Rica. Often the list is very much the same from year to year. Classroom supplies are quite similar the world over. Paper, pencils and art supplies. We ask again for the "dream list" which takes a bit more consideration.
Canines for Kids is a group of friends, in Albany New York who have made major donations to Costa Rican Schools and Belizean Nutrition
Sixth grade built by the community and funded by donors.
