Commitment

Shoulder to Shoulder is versatile, and their stance in the southwestern corner of Honduras is committed. Community respect for the organization shows through the people you meet. In participation with an educational brigade through UNCA, I was able to interact with faculty and students in small primary schools and also interpret for patients and doctors in community clinic settings. The small towns with cobbled roads and old white mission-style churches located in the lush mountainous landscapes of Intibucá provide impressive locales to meet so many smiling and curious faces from all over the United States, Honduras and beyond. Intibucá, like all places, is not without its politics and difficulties, but it also is a place with so much to offer. Shoulder to Shoulder fosters the values of service and cooperation and provides a place for coming together, learning and sharing. – Jack
