Yesterday, we found out that one more young lady from La Moskitia will have an opportunity attend Leadership University in Zambrano, Honduras! Art for Humanity, in the US, started this pilot university in February of this year … free to poor young women who are diligent and eager students but have no way to achieve a future on their own. After 5 years of study, the result will be a bilingual student with a degree in Business Administration, plus the skills of running a coffee business from the ground up.
Last spring, Reach Out Honduras submitted 3 candidates for consideration in the inaugural class of Leadership University. Of 15 students accepted, 3 were from La Moskitia! And now, a 4th!
We are thrilled to be a small part in this giant step of college education for these 4. And we are prayerfully looking for the next applicants for early 2012.
