Kong Maha Primary School | Cambodia Rustic began working with the primary school in the village of Kong Maha in 2011. In that time, projects have included installing a fence around the school, building toilets, constructing a library, and providing supplies. Rustic students contributed to the construction of two new classrooms in 2017. These classrooms were originally intended to establish kindergarten at the school, but parts of the main building began collapsing during the summer and the school was forced to create makeshift classrooms beneath tarps outside. Now, the two new classrooms have been earmarked for other grades and should be complete by the end of 2017.

Youth Empowerment

Summer Camp Leadership | Costa Rica Since 2008, our Summer Camp Leadership program has provided hands-on learning opportunities to Costa Rican youth in the La Fortuna region. The seven-day camp allows Rustic students to participate in cross-cultural exchange to facilitate activities with the youth that focus on leadership development, English language improvement, creativity, and teamwork. Local youth attend the camp from 23 different elementary schools in two school districts and return home with lasting memories from their interactions with Rustic students. „ 8 camp sessions „ 197 Costa Rican youth participants „ 8,278 hours of immersive learning

Demonstrating SLO: Shared Humanity “When I left Costa Rica I wasn’t just leaving a country, I was leaving a family.”
