We returned to campus a couple days before all the students and new volunteers were set to return. We got a lot of vegetables and other food for campus and prepared the rest of campus for the students and volunteers. We had to take all the volunteers and students in 3 different car loads. Two of the volunteers were/are the new Deans of Education – a couple that is tackling the job together. They have a good background in linguistics and have made positive changes to the school in their first 2 weeks. They are teaching the newer girls a lot of English and I am impressed with the new students drive to learn. They are a good group of girls. In fact, our whole student body is very enjoyable. We have learned to love them and call them family.
There is a lot of building going on, on campus, including a platform for a new water tank - for clean drinking water, new classrooms, expansion of the comedor (where we eat), and soon we hope to raise funds for the start of a library. Actually we currently have a “matching gift” offer, that is if any gifts come in specifically for the library, they will be matched dollar for dollar up to $7500!! What a great opportunity for you to get involved in providing education to the future leaders of Honduras!!
