It has been with the continued support and generous donations of our circle of friends and family that Diana has been able to make amazing progress on the construction of her new home.
The construction team have been able to work quickly and closely with Diana to build a simple yet unique design that fits with the lifestyle and needs of the entire family. It is now the final push for the completion of the house and we are so close to reaching the total target amount. With those final donations, Diana will be able to complete the house with the finishing needed to make it a home and purchase the all-important items that make our houses function with ease.
From the loving support of our friends and family of Diana and Finca Mia, it was possible to start the necessary groundwork in July to make a safe and solid foundation to build a home for Diana, Nia, Kenay and Akim. Within our community, with close friends and neighbours, a traditional Despacho ceremony was held asking for permission and blessings from the spirits and ancestors of these lands to build a home here. It was a gathering filled with love and intention.
Following the ceremony, the building permits were submitted. After waiting for several weeks, it is with joy that we can announce the permits have come through and the construction of the house can begin this Monday 23rd August. With a tremendous community effort, we have supported Diana and manifested a home for her and her family. We are looking forward to seeing you all in your home and to celebrate this joyous moment with you.
Our beloved Diana and her three children, Akim, Kenay, and Nia, have found home here in the Chirripo mountains for 10 years. The house they have been living in for the past 7 years as renters has recently sold. The new owners have graciously given her until August 2021 to be moved out.
Joyfully, Diana has recently purchased a beautiful piece of land in the Lloroso Valley of Los Angeles de Rivas with the dream of building her forever family home through the government funding available to support single mothers here in Costa Rica. However, due to the pandemic and other government measures, the funding program has been halted this past May, meaning this sweet family can no longer afford to construct the home they have been dreaming of.
With the move out of her current family home drawing closer, Diana needs community contributions to build a house for her loving and hardworking family. The home plan is of a simple design of 700 sq ft, similar to that of the homes from the funding program, that can be constructed quickly. We would love to see her move her family directly into the new home on the land as soon as possible.
The proposal for the basic construction costs is $23,000, and with additional fees, the total needed is $30,000. Diana is searching for the full amount to manifest the house she needs to support, grow and care for her sweet family and bring their new home to fruition.
If you feel called to be a part of this amazing tribal effort to assist Diana in this process, now is the time. Any amount puts Diana a step closer to reach her goal, and your contribution will be gratefully received.
All that Diana contributes and pursues in life is in the name of the greater good, healing, and growth. Constantly Diana has shown her love for this community by supporting the process and co-founding the Escuelita Finca Mia, giving children access to a conscious and connected education; organizing community events and concerts that have brought our persons closer whilst raising funds for worthy causes in the mountain; as well as being an activist within the wider community, spreading awareness of issues worthy of our attention and showing those the way when they may be lost.
Professionally, Diana is an experienced bodyworker of Thai massage and healer through her depth of knowledge. She has consciously contributed to the path of the plants through the lineage of Cristina and weaved her magic, wisdom, and healing through many ceremonies, supporting those in need and assisting Cristina and our other servers when called upon. She has given her time, magic, and knowledge to Finca Mia for the past 8 years, and those who have graced her presence will know how sweet and heart-centered her intentions are for those around her.
This amazing woman has no limitations and has lovingly raised a family whilst supporting them with full-time work. A mother of the highest accolade and yet humble to the core, Diana is a caring being that puts her young's well-being first and shows this through her work and dedication to raise them as consciously as possible, with love and humility.
Diana is a pillar of our community, supporting from her heart to those that cross her path. She serves for the good of all with clear intentions and graciousness. Please join us in raising the roof for Diana and her children, and we look forward to seeing Diana and her beautiful family in their new home by August!
Diana has worked incredibly hard to get thus far in her journey and purchased the land outright as a qualifier to receive the government funding to build a house that is now no longer available. The property is owned in full by Diana. Below, we share with you the house plan and the proposal for the construction. The construction of this house style is usually completed within a rapid time frame due to the pre-fab design, making it possible for Diana and her family to be living in their home in a considerably short time.
Any additional donations received over what is being asked will be invested into the house beyond the basic design and planting to bring the house into harmony with the surrounding greenery.
