TSP met with leaders in the community of Soroguara
Thanks to your ongoing support, The Solidarity Project has started off 2020 in action! Over the last month, TSP traveled to two new communities and met with Community Leaders that solicited partnerships for impact and community development through the expansion of our community micro-granting project, “Mesa Comunitaria.” Currently, TSP works in five rural communities in Honduras and due to your generous support during our annual GlobalGiving campaign, we are working hard to reach new leaders. Our micro-granting project cultivates and supports Honduran leaders that address pressing community problems. Together with the community, grassroots leaders design, select and execute development projects that typically focus on access to clean water, health, education, infrastructure improvements, environmental preservation, art, culture, and creativity.
This month, TSP met with several leaders from the rural villages where we have active partnerships, such as El Aguacatal, Tule, Majada Verde and Coa Abajo. In each community, TSP will hold a community-wide meeting and also offer workshops on topics that the community has expressed interest in. In the community of Coa Abajo, TSP and the local leaders are working together to plan for their second micro-grant event, coming up in March 2020. TSP partnered with this rural community in the Central District outside the Capital city, Tegucigalpa, at the end of 2019. The leaders of Coa Abajo have already successfully completed the installation of their community-selected lighting project in their central square. This year we will work together to hold two micro-grant events that will be led by their youth leaders. We look forward to sharing the results of our next event with this new partner community!
In 2020, TSP also remains committed to supporting talented local leaders' inspiring ideas, fostering engagement, and sharing the stories of solidarity and resiliency that are seen throughout the rural communities in Honduras. By the end of the year, we will reach our goal to support up to 17 micro-granted projects that are designed, chosen, and implemented by community groups themselves. Thanks to your support, we are thrilled to provide a venue through Mesa Comunitaria that will directly empower community members with the projects that they design and select! If you feel inspired by our work, please share it!
All our Best,
Coa Abajo completes their project & celebrates!
