Since 2004, in the community of La Hilda, Portland Roasting Coffee has been working with The Coffee Source to fund a proper place to care, nurture and educate children of farm families and also for those children who accompany migrant families working the in the harvest.
The harvest season in Costa Rica is generally from late fall to early spring, in 2017 the Harvest began in Late November. 20 kids attended La Hilda, with ages ranging from 3-10 years old. While their parents were working to harvest the year’s coffee crop, these kids had a place to play and be kids.
The La Hilda daycare provided children with a general medical check, dental check, meals, a playground and educational talks.
