Assembly Meetings Offer More Than Education

Our new blog has English and Spanish! ¡Nuestro nuevo blog tiene versiones en ingles y español! 

As one of two new Development Interns in Adelante’s La Ceiba Headquarters, I recently ventured out to La Masica, Atlántida for my first field visit. As I observed the educational lessons during the assemblies I was reminded of my favorite childhood book, “It Takes a Village” by Jane Cowen-Fletcher. The story follows a young girl as she nervously looks for her brother in their village, and constantly finds him safe and sound in the care of different village members. During the assembly I watched children go from one woman to the next, vying for their attention as they climbed on their laps or stood patiently alongside their chairs, waiting to be given some type of sweet. To read more about Hannah’s time in the field and about our programs, check out our new blog here: http://www.adelantefoundation.org/en/read-our-blog/42-from-the-field/174-assembly-meetings-offer-more-than-education

Como una de las dos pasantes del Departamento de  Desarrollo en La Sede  de Adelante en La Ceiba, recientemente viajé a La Masica, Atlántica para mi primera visita al campo . Mientras escuché las charlas  educativas durante las reuniones de asamblea, me acordé de mi libro de infancia preferido: Se necesita todo un pueblo  por Jane Cowen-Fletcher. La historia sigue la vida de una joven mientras nerviosamente busca a su hermano en un pueblo y constantemente lo encuentra sano y salvo bajo el cuidado de diferentes miembros de la aldea. Durante las reuniones de asamblea, observé a niños vacilar de una mujer a la otra, compitiendo por su atención mientras se montaban encima de sus piernas o se paraban junto a sus sillas con la esperanza de conseguir un dulce.
