  Update from Costa Rica

In October 2016, Seeds of Hope hosted an event for 770 Costa Rican teens to educate them on the sexual exploitation of children in Costa Rica. Seeds of Hope presents this material at high schools and clubhouses throughout Costa Rica on a monthly basis. This monthly event is sponsored by the government committee Seeds of Hope partners with on their campaign to "Break the Chain" of sexual exploitation of minors in Costa Rica. During these events, the students learn how to recognize and avoid exploitation, and who to call or talk to get counsel and help.

The October assembly included a famous Tico singer as the MC, a performance by an expert BMX bike rider, some great speakers, and two dramas presented by teen leaders and staff of Seeds of Hope.

"This event went just great in every way," says Sara Ara from Seeds of Hope. "I hope the photos give you some idea of the program and what we do as staff and teachers at Seeds of Hope."

The monthly events last from 8 am to noon. "Very exciting but also exhausting — then we take off to 4 different clubhouses to teach our after-school classes from 5 to 8 pm!" Ara adds.
