No Shared Cookies for A While

By Mariela Rodriguez | Assistant Director

During a typical school year, our Shoulder to Shoulder staff keep busy with our educational programs that range from providing biligual education -- to robotics -- to increased literacy -- to computer assisted learning via Kolibri.  

Honduras cancelled classes on March 12th and it's hard to believe how quickly three months have passed.  At that point, we had no idea our schools and offices would stay eerily quiet for so long.  While in the US, the school year was ending, in Honduras it had just begun in February.  

The current pandemic has catapulted us to doing all of our work from our individual computers, in our individual homes.  Now, we are separated by many miles, instead of just an office wall.  Our afternoon coffee breaks happen individually now:

  •  Minsis in the refreshing hillside of Malpaso
  •  Nely accompanied by the howling wind between Yamaranguila's trees
  •  Edel amongst the dense Camasca forest 
  •  Me (Mariela) from a hidden apartment near Chicago

You can imagine how much we miss our shared cookie stash...and our coworkers, of course!  We continue having team meetings where we share our week's highs and lows, and put our heads together to figure out what we CAN do for our educational programs in these challenging times.

Thank you for all of your support to Shoulder to Shoulder's Educational Programs!
