The WCCR is a philanthropic organization supporting education, primarily through scholarships and development of school libraries for children in Costa Rica. Founded in 1940, it is one of the oldest continuously operating service organizations in Costa Rica. The club’s English-speaking membership of 350 women of all ages represents 20 countries. Drawn together by the motto of “Friendship Through Service,” they meet with guest speakers on the second Wednesday of each month. More information can be found at www.wccr.org.
