The 2011 Work Tour just returned from an exciting trip to Honduras, where the group of 18 had a 10-day adventure of volunteer work and sightseeing. Claudia Menendez, our fearless International Program Coordinator, guided the group (ranging in ages from 9 to 74 years old), giving each participant an insider’s perspective on our clean cookstove and reforestation projects.
The Work Tour traveled to the communities of El Empedrado, Quiscamote, El Escarbadero, and Monte Redondo to complete volunteer projects. In just 10 days, the group planted over 300 trees and built 12 clean cookstoves. This experience gave each person the opportunity to learn more about TWP’s community-based development approach while learning about the cultural context of Honduras.
We are so glad this wonderful group of people could come together with us and make the trip to Central America. We thank each and every person for bringing positive energy and hard work to the tour.
