Location: Rio Claro

Today was another amazing day with Fatima. Although the work is tiresome, it results with a great reward. In the hours we’ve spent the past two days, we have accomplished so much from building a roof to making a concrete floor. A moment that stuck out to us today was finishing the concrete floor while singing at the same time. A feeling of euphoria fell over us as we finished the last of the concrete. At the end of the job, Fatima even joined in to help make the concrete because she was worried we wouldn’t be home in time for dinner. It was inspiring to see Fatima’s dedication to the project and heartwarming to see her concern for us. Her touching attitude reminded us why we were in Costa Rica. It is so rewarding to see how you actions can positively benefit those around you.
