Check back here regularly to find out what's going with Friends United.
Bessy Morales, our Friends United leader in Honduras, is shown with teachers from villages surrounding Gracias, where we will have our newest teacher resource center opening in June. She gave a two day workshop on reading and writing teaching strategies. The teachers used writing strategies taught by Bessy from our own consultant, Steve Peha, to create their own writing pieces. Then they were going to put them in book form to share with their students. These are villages that have no books and no libraries available to them so this skill is important for them to have. Many thanks to the teachers who Bessy said we’re super motivated to learn AND a big thank you to Bessy for continuing our work when we cannot be there!!
This is our Friends United/Amigos Unidos leader in Honduras, Bessy Morales. Bessy was asked by US officials from USAID to assist them with their special reading/writing focus program the US has been working on in Central America and the Caribbean to improve literacy in those countries. The great work and success of our previous and current literacy efforts in Honduras has not gone unnoticed! Great job, Bessy!
Friends United is proud to announce that our President, Charlotte Ruoff, received the Rotary Service Above Self Award. This honor only went to 150 people out of more than 1.2 million Rotarians. We invite everyone to share their best wishes to a person who has dedicated her time to our organization and the education of the children in Honduras. This reward was recognition of the dedication and service to Friends United.
