I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in, visiting or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
Better yet - do you have extra time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help updating info. Spanish speakers ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

Has my blog helped in any way? Helped find something•brought more EASE? More exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR appreciation for my efforts!
(see below other ways to show your appreciation)
The easiest way is with PAYPAL - Attn: LivingLifeInCostaRica@gmail.com

• Amazon.com or GoDaddy.com Credit•Gift Certificate (attn: SarongGoddess@gmail.com)
• Something else to share?? A gift certificate or invite for your business? I'm open!! (at times I'll add other things here that I'm seeking)

Marcha ¡Basta de Indiferencia! Somos, no Fuimos ni Seremos - Febrero 25

Marcha ¡Basta de Indiferencia! Somos, no Fuimos ni Seremos

Movimiento de Vida Independiente de Costa Rica

Lunes • Monday - Febrero • February 25, 2013  -  9am-12/noon

Las personas con discapacidad (PcD) exigimos los mismos derechos, el cumplimiento de la Convención de Derechos Humanos de las personas con Discapacidad, en los últimos días hemos visto diferentes formas de violencia que sufrimos y les invitamos a que se sumen en esta ocasión.

El grupo de Movimiento de Vida Independiente tiene una preocupación y es que los proyectos de Ley que trabajan el tema de discapacidad y en general no son consultados a nuestras organizaciones, dejando de lado el enfoque de las personas con discapacidad y sus derechos.

La Asamblea Legislativa no nos consulta proyectos legislativos y cuando lo hacen no toman en consideración las capacidades diferentes que tenemos, es decir, la consulta no va dirigida en formatos que sean accesibles para nosotras y nosotros, por tanto muchas veces no se puede responder y esto en materia legislativa es señal a favor.

Exigimos que se garantice la Consulta accesible a todos los grupos de PcD, queremos romper con el silencio que por décadas se nos ha impuesto y con el cual se sigue visibilizando a Personas capaces de ejercer su autonomía de forma eficaz.

Marcharemos del Parque Central a la Asamblea Legislativa y diremos ¡Basta de Indiferencia!

Persons with disabilities (PWDs) we demand the same rights, compliance with the Convention on Human Rights of Persons with Disabilities, in recent days we have seen different forms of violence that we suffer and we invite you to join this time.

The group of Independent Living Movement has a concern is that the bills working in the field of disability and are usually not consulted our organizations, ignoring the focus of people with disabilities and their rights.

The Legislature did not draft legislation and consultation when they do not take into account the different capabilities that we have, that is, the query is not addressed in formats that are accessible to us and we therefore often can not be answered and this signal is legislative favor.

We demand to ensure the consultation accessible to all groups of PWDs, we break the silence that for decades has imposed and which is still making visible to people capable of exercising autonomy effectively.

March from Central Park to the Legislature and say Enough Indifference!
