EVENT DATE Jun 13, 2015

THE STORY:

Building a bridge started with cleaning up a swamp.  Swamp-cleaning was the not-particularly-glamorous job that the village leaders of Nueva Armenia in Honduras requested of us for last year’s community service trip. As we joyfully sifted through the muck for trash we realized that we were removing more than just filth from an important entry way for this fishing-dependent coastal village, we were removing obstacles from our ability to relate and care for these now friends, one dirty diaper at a time!

Nueva Armenia is a poor coastal town that brings in the majority of its income through fishing alone. Their conditions are less than ideal. Due to the extreme circumstances, they are not able to cross over many of the hurdles to help their community advance and rise above the poverty. When asked what would be the most help to them, the community leaders requested a slightly less gross job this year (albeit we will still be working in the stagnant area of the swamp):

This year we will be re-building an essential, but terribly broken down bridge.  This bridge is used by many in the village for both economic and social purposes, and as of right now, it is unsafe to cross.

In order to accomplish this, we need your help. We are raising money for this project and would like you to consider giving. We are partnering with an organization called Signs of Love. They are based in Honduras where they do outreach to the deaf community who are often times marginalized by society. They have been in contact with the community leaders in Nueva Armenia and will be overseeing the project. Here are some of the details:
