Opportunity for refugee women in Guarari, Herdia, Costa Rica.


This group of mother’s residing in a refugee community in Guarari, Heredia, Costa Rica are learning jewelry making skills that will provide for their families, build community, and bring opportunities that empower, heal and extend beyond the borders of their sheet-metal homes.

Their clear glass-beaded bracelets with one azure bead represents the flag of their home, Nicaragua. Each bracelet sold supports these women through living wages and gives back to Sonrisas con Esperanza-a ministry that brings hope to the residents of this community.
