Hygiene Education in Choluteca: Education Tailored to Our Clients’ Needs

ImageMy most recent field visit brought me to Choluteca in the south of Honduras. Prior to my journey I was told that it was extremely warm there, so I knew I was in for a real treat. The first two days it was surprisingly cool because it is the rainy season or ‘winter’. But when the clouds disappeared from the sky for just a while, the sun became burning hot. This combination of pouring rain and strong sunshine provides for the green mountains that characterize Choluteca. – See more at: http://www.adelantefoundation.org/en/read-our-blog/42-from-the-field/176-hygiene-education-in-choluteca-education-tailored-to-our-clients-needs#sthash.pIPB2NsC.dpuf

Mi viaje más reciente me trajo al departamento de Choluteca en el sur de Honduras. Antes de comenzar mi trayecto, me dijeron que haría mucho calor y desde entonces supe que sería un buen viaje. El clima durante los primeros dos días fue sorprendentemente fresco porque era la temporada de lluvia o el “invierno”. Pero cuando las nubes desaparecieron del cielo por un corto rato, el sol ardió. Esta combinación de lluvias torrenciales y el calor del sol ardiente establece las montañas verdes que caracterizan a Choluteca. – See more at: http://www.adelantefoundation.org/es/lea-nuesto-blog/42-from-the-field/176-hygiene-education-in-choluteca-education-tailored-to-our-clients-needs#sthash.mDwTqqU8.dpuf

About Gina C

My interest in Latin America first brought me to Guayaquil, Ecuador for a short term summer program. One year later, I returned for a full semester. I graduated from SUNY New Paltz in New Paltz, NY in May 2012 with a BA degree in International Relations, having also minored in Spanish. My internship experiences while abroad allowed me to gain knowledge regarding the social issues faced by Latin Americans, while other volunteer positions including an ongoing Spanish translation position with Kiva have allowed me to put my Spanish skills to use. My involvement with Kiva as both a lender and translator inspired me to pursue and accept my current position as the International Development Coordinator for Adelante Foundation in Honduras.
