August 2017

La Carpio, located to the north of Costa Rica’s capital city San José, is one of the country’s poorest and most vulnerable communities. With some 30 to 40,000 people living in informal, title-less housing, the area is known for its high indices of crime and the poverty that most of its residents experience.

The Costa Rican Humanitarian Foundation has been working on community development and educational projects in La Carpio since 1997. Some of its most successful projects include the founding of education and day care centers, support for youth sports teams, a medical clinic, and the community’s only working library, as well as the distribution of more than 4,000 beds for the children of La Carpio.

Café Britt is proud to have partnered with the Foundation to promote initiatives that will improve the living conditions and futures of residents of La Carpio. We have joined forces to mentor and encourage a group of entrepreneurial women in the development of a variety of products made with reusable materials, mainly coffee packaging. All these products are sold at Britt Shop stores in Costa Rica.
