BENEFITING: Signs of Love
EVENT DATE: Jun 13, 2015
Who: Me and a team of people from Northwestern Mutual
What: Rebuilding a bridge
Where: Nueva Armenia, Honduras
When: June 13-20, 2015
Nueva Armenia is a poor coastal town that brings in the majority of its income through fishing alone. When asked what would be the most help to them, the community leaders requested that we rebuild 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. 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, but they believe this will make a huge impact.
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.
