Costa Rica Women’s Charitable Association (CRWCA)

Our Mission
Legal Costa Rican Non-Profit Organization to help Women of Jaco, CR become self-sufficient to improve their lives and their children. We offer women tools necessary for economic advancement towards a better life by putting them in their Own Businesses.

The purpose of our organization is to give women who passionately want to learn business concepts A Hand UP, Not a Hand Out and provide a better life for their families.

CRWCA evaluates candidates for skills they already have that can be profitably used to turn into reputable businesses. We will help the women of Garabito learn up to date job skills, computer usage and English communication skills. Having learned new business skills we assist in getting them started to run a successful business.

Local businesses and mentors provide necessary training, skills and job placement. Together we create a long term business plan for independent ownership. Our goal is to encourage and make a positive impact so the families and community benefit as a whole from our program.

Initially CRWCA women are paid a basic wage and receive incentives. The third year of being business candidates receive 5% of the profits, the fourth year is increased to 10% and at that point they must be capable of doing the business on their own.

Our aim is to have businesses be totally self-sufficient. Purchase of property enables the businesses to be rent free. CRWCA is committed to the environment in all of its ventures. Our mission leads us to Farming, Hydroponics Growing Opportunities, Solar Energy, and Biomass Conversion, making us 100% ECO Friendly.
