How it began was a bit of a fluke: Our incoming president, Debbie Overcash, attended the mandatory presidents’ training in Nashville.
Getting to Honduras… not so rough (yet pretty scary with those two in the cockpit!) But, once our boots are on the ground, you just never know what to expect.

Plans are already underway for our International team to return to Choluteca, Honduras in November and again in February 2018.
Traditional stoves common throughout Honduras are non-vented, inefficient, and unsafe.
Madison Rotarians first traveled to Honduras in 2007 to assist Rotarians from Lawrenceburg, Tennessee with an electrical project.
