The numerous Saturday afternoons spent selling Chipotle burritos, the biweekly meetings spent discussing everything from new plans for ventures to membership to project goals, the planning, the phone calls, the advertising – all culminating in this: our morning flight from Houston International Airport to Roatan, Honduras.
Four students from the newly established Rice University Nourish Chapter will be living in the heart of the city, embarking on an education collaboration with PIER (Partners in Education Roatan), working to assemble and distribute “education boxes” to the organization. These boxes include curricula and materials to study English, Math and Science for elementary and middle school-age children.
Need to finish up that last-minute packing but check out this blog, as we will be frequently updating it with our Honduran experiences and how the project is progressing over the next six weeks.
