FROM THE FIELD: Sharing migration stories across generations in Central America

Two migrants, one young and one old, have been sharing their experiences of migrating to a small town in Costa Rica in Central America.

From different backgrounds and with contrasting dreams, Candelario Téllez, and Juan Carlos both originally from Nicaragua share a common goal of wanting to be part of and thrive in their adopted community in the town of Upala.

Juan Carlos is a passionate youth leader who promotes environmental protection. He combines activism with his studies to finish high school. UN Costa Rica/Danilo Mora

The UN, and specifically the  IOM (International Organization for Migration) and UNHCR (UN Refugee Agency), is currently supporting programmes for migrants in the town and across the region.
