BENEFITING: Signs of Love

ORGANIZER: Travis

EVENT DATE: Jun 13, 2015

Michael Baker

THE STORY:

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. 

This will be my first time volunteering in Honduras, but our gracious leader Travis has been coordinating this trip annually for the last 10 years. In June of last year, they spent a week helping the community clean up a trash-filled swamp.

I have heard only great things from members of the group about their experiences in Honduras. Their continued generosity and aid has allowed them to foster a meaningful relationship with the community as well as lasting friendships with the villagers themselves. I'm very exicted to become part of their team, and I hope you'll help me get there!
