Girls for Success
A Peace through Yoga Foundation Project
The purpose of the Girls for Success program is to enrich, educate, and empower girls in the rural area of Hone Creek and the surrounding community in Costa Rica.
Our vision is for our girls to grow up to be smart, confident, and ready to learn.
Our hope is for each girl to reach their full intellectual and earning potential so that they become self-sufficient leaders in their communities.
What we do
Our program offers 16 girls aged 7 to 12 the opportunity to further their learning after school.
For three hours each day, we work with our students on English and sewing as well as art and music. Each month students participate in a life skills workshop or an educational excursion.
