Making an Impact — With a Huge Smile

Over the past six years, we have traveled to El Carrizo once a quarter. While this has been enough to build trust and relationships, we realized to make a larger impact we would need a more consistent presence. On our most recent visit to the village, we were excited to introduce our first full-time employee, Lizzy Garcia Oseguera. We have known Lizzy and her family since we began coming to Honduras several years ago. She has volunteered with us on many of our trips and has also developed trust and relationships in the village. Lizzy, a local Honduran with an undergraduate degree in education, will be responsible for the operation of Aprende Conmigo, and will also be invaluable in maintaining Sponsor/Child communication. Her smile has already won the hearts of the community, and her hard work is already paying huge dividends.
