Projects in Central America
You may be interested to know that part of my income from counselling and supervision goes to support community projects in Honduras. This is a country where I used to live before becoming a counsellor and where I have longstanding friendships.
The projects are implemented by the Lenca Foundation for Community Development, whose volunteer staff are community leaders of great vision, committed to the empowerment of women and young people.
The photos show the projects that we supported in 2021.
In 2022, we will be supporting four more projects:
- 10 acres of coffee plantations
- A tree nursery with 1,000 lemon, orange, avocado and oak tree seedlings
- High school education for 25 young people
- 2 apprenticeships in metalwork
If you would like to learn more about the projects and to follow their progress, please click here for the website of the Tigh Sgoile Trust, an organisation that I set up with my husband Chris in 2021.
Many congratulations to Juana Araceli, Kelli Maria, Mayra Gisela, Merari, Carlos Alberto, Henry, Jayron Josué, Nery Eliezer, Pedro Antonio and Victor Edgardo, ten young people from the community of Los Puentes in the western Highlands of Honduras. After much dedication to their studies, they have passed their “Bachillerato” in Sciences and Humanities, (equivalent of Scottish Highers), and are pictured at their graduation ceremony, held on Saturday 20 February 2021.
