The Abraham Project is located in Villas de Ayarco, which is only twenty-five minutes from San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica.

The land consists of approximately 2.5 acres and was purchased with money raised within Costa Rica. . In October 2001, a local Costa Rican company donated a large amount of wood to the project which the Abraham Project recycled into building material.

The wood comes from crates that were used to import large sheets of glass.  These crates are disassembled before the scrap lumber is transported to the project site.  At the project, all staples and nails are removed.  The boards are then treated, planed, sanded and prepared so that they can be used for lumber.  With this lumber we construct buildings, trim walls, and make doors, stairs, cabinets, closets, and furniture.
