It will be summer in Costa Rica during the months of January and February, 2019 (even though we are in the northern hemisphere). But is is the hottest and driest time of the year. This is why we have blocked the week of the 21st of January 2019 for us to proceed and build the trails and bridges. So far, we have about 8 volunteers, not including myself, and some funds that we have received so far.
We are asking you to help us with some funding to purchase cement and gravel to both, build bridges and to lay down on the trails. Let me clarify that only the bridges are built on concrete. The gravel is laid on the trails so that we reduce the risk of erosion. At the same time it is easier to walk, and for kids it is safer, as it is not slippery especially on hilly terrain. Actually, the entire property is very hilly. Your support will also help us hire a worker who will lead mainly the constructions of the bridges and some steps.
We will send you pictures of the construction activity, and of course show you how your support has materialized. We greatly appreciate your support so far and hope that you can give us another push. Our plan is to finish this project by the end of January, 2019.
