I believe Olancho Aid does a great work offering opportunities to young people. I myself find my opportunity amusing. I got to know lots of people and places, I improved my English and I found myself capable of new posibilities.

My daughter taught as a volunteer at the Santa Clara Elementary School run by Olancho Aid Foundation in Juticalpa, Honduras, for the 2010-2011 school year. I visited in Juticalpa while she was there, and I was amazed at the good work being done at all three of the school OAF administers there (Nazareth, Santa Clara, and the High School.) OAF is providing an excellent opportunity for education for the children of Juticalpa, and I believe that will lift many of these children from very low socio-economic backgrounds to a much better life when they complete school and find employment. The organization also is providing job opportunities for many of the residents, as they work in the schools that OAF has founded and administers.

This is an organization that has lives dedicated to the enrichment of education, health and faith. I've witnessed the dedication of staff who sacrifice their personal lives for the sake of others in greater need.
