Empowering indigenous people in Costa Rica


Network Member

Many of Costa Rica’s indigenous communities struggle for the legal recognition of their rights, driving a wedge between them and their neighbours in surrounding districts. Although they strive to keep their cultural identity and language alive, they also seek to integrate modern advancements into their communities.


Servicios de Educación y Promoción Juvenil (SEPROJOVEN) uses football as an educational tool to promote the personal development of Costa Rica’s youth, while supporting the inclusion of indigenous people and migrants.


Projects like the Copa de Fútbol Comunitaria Indigena and programmes in the border region to Nicaragua facilitate the inclusion of indigenous people and migrants into the communities.
