The Real Madrid Foundation's socio-sporting school in Costa Rica is located in Heredia and came about as a result of the partnership with Costa Rica's Universidad Latina.
This school seeks to offer a safe recreational space for boys and girls from within the vulnerable communities of Heredia by promoting education on values through the medium of sport, supporting the participants' schooling and promoting a healthy lifestyle amongst the boys and girls and their families.
The school also attempts to reduce family violence and improve the childrens' diets through providing regular afternoon snacks and its nutritional support programmes.
The university puts forward students who are enrolled on different degree programmes as volunteers for the project, this has given rise to programmes in which the boys and girls needs in the following areas are catered for: dentistry, optometry, psychology, medicine, nutrition and social work.
Globalvia is one of the main financial backers behind this project.
