In Costa Rica the government and private programs for children terminate at age 18. Not allowing them the opportunity to transition (completing their education or studies), forces them to the streets daily exposed to violence, drugs, sexual exploitation and other risks. The Works of the Holy Spirit, has been working hand in hand with these communities that are in conditions of vulnerability and exclusion.
