Nepal Announcement

With the current situation in Nepal, we will not be accepting any new volunteers for May or June. Relief agencies will be hard at work, and the country’s infrastructure will be severely strained trying to support the people of Nepal. Once the situation stabilizes, the skills that individual volunteers can provide will be sorely needed. Please consider helping out after this initial period. We will be tailoring our projects to fill needs as they arise.

Costa Rica: Women's Empowerment in Liberia

ELI partners with women’s offices in the city of Liberia, where the municipality advocates for women’s and children’s rights and provide services such as training, support and advice. These organizations focus on education, self-esteem, and other initiatives which give women the proper tools to improve themselves and their family's economic and social conditions. Programs center on issues such as domestic violence, women's rights, women's health, and economics/ entrepreneurial projects. Participants may help with different projects which strive to improve the living conditions of women including: training workshops on handicrafts, clothing, cooking, ceramics etc.; business training; presentations and forum discussions on home violence, leadership, women’s rights and health consultations.
