For a week in late January, 2011, my close family friend invited me to accompany her on an annual trip to Honduras to reconvene with the committee members of her NGO, The School Loan Project. Although I lacked the ability to speak Spanish, a necessary skill in Central America, I took her up on that generous offer and depended on her fluency in the language to get by. During that week, I sat in on a few of their meetings, which were based in Siguatepeque, offering some ideas that may improve the project to the best of my ability. Over the course of that trip, I was able to meet some wonderful people devoted to helping underprivileged children in Honduras achieve an education, see the beautiful terrain of Honduras, and spend time in three cities, Siguatepeque, La Esperanza, and San Pedro Sula.
