Working “Side by Side” = Successful Community Development

Medical schools and medical providers come to Honduras to offer much needed medical services.  For that, we are very grateful.

But, the folks at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and Fairfax Family Practice Centers (FFPC) have gone a step further.  They have hired a Honduran (Iris Giron) to work in Community Development in their eight communties.

Each community was given $400, and advised to use the funds on a needed community project.  What can you get for $400??  You’d be amazed:

A new kitchen at a school
Printer and supplies
A new floor and walls at a Community Hall
Bathrooms and Water Tanks
Iris wrote a short report on each project.  As they say, “a picture is worth 1,000 words.”  Iris’ reports are a graphic depiction of what can happen when you invest — not just money, but invest in working side by side with a community.
