Costa Rica: Face of Justice

New Home scheduled to open in 2024

Socioeconomic Context

The child sex industry is a significant issue in Costa Rica, and most child sexual exploitation occurs in connection with tourism. It is estimated that over 5,000 people visit Costa Rica for sex tourism annually (UNICEF, 2021).

What We Fund

The Hovde Home provides emotional, spiritual and physical rehabilitation for girls between the ages of 13 and 17 years old that have identified by the government as victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. As the only safe house in Costa Rica exclusively serving to this population, the home offers expanded outreach to care for 24 girls in a loving to recover their lives.
