Preparing Professionals who Give Back

By Mariela Rodriguez | Communications Coordinator

We are now halfway through the school year, and our scholarship students have been refreshed with a package of supplies to help them finish up the year. Our scholarship coordinator, Nelly, continues to meet with the five colegios to assess any pending needs which not only include your typical pencils and shoes, but some students need more specialized equipment like electrical tools or professional attire to complete their internships. 

Your dedication to our students helps remove yet another stressor in completing their education, allowing them to focus solely on their schoolwork and graduating. And as a way to give back to their community, students conduct a small project. With Honduras experiencing a heavy rainy season, many places in Honduras have flooded. Among one of those places was our recently built STEM Center in Camasca. The scholarship students there decided to help solve the issue by digging a trench to redirect the water that was otherwise flowing into the entrances of the STEM Center.

The rainy season is not yet over and small projects like these help our young professionals learn that giving back to their communities, in whatever way they are able to, has just as much impact as the help they are receiving.

We wish our students a wonderful end of the year as our program prepares to graduate another generation of students who have prospered amid all the social barriers they face and that COVID-19 has thrown their way. 

We appreciate your support to our youth's education and for believing in their potential.
