HONDURAS Board Trip // APRIL 24 - 30, 2019

We welcome you on this year’s board of directors trip to Honduras, under the leadership of our newest Country Director Zoila Reyes and her hardworking team!

Our SHI-Honduras staff, along with Program Impact Manager, Ricardo Romero, have planned an engaging and educational itinerary featuring the incredible progress that has been made in recent years.

Safety is always paramount, so travel will be in chartered buses and marked SHI program vehicles, and lodging will be in hotels vetted by our team. The group will always be accompanied by Spanish-speaking SHI staff, knowledgable of the region.

This year, we are pleased to offer an optional two-day excursion at the end of the trip. After five years of hard work, join us in celebrating the great achievements of graduating families from four communities in Yoro!
