Rotarian Dr. Michael St. Peter (left) welcomed Mr. Tom Slattery from the Indiana Lions Club as he delivered 1200 pairs of reading glasses for our upcoming humanitarian mission trip to Honduras.
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.
Honduras is the 2nd poorest country in Central America, with approximately 64% of Hondurans living below the poverty level of 2 dollars per day.
Madison Rotarians have been traveling to Honduras since 2015 to provide eyeglasses and medical eye care to people in remote mountain regions of southern Honduras.
In 2008, we took the first small duffel bag full of toothbrushes and dental supplies.
Every project needs a coordinator and our Honduras Project needs Carolina.
As part of our annual Honduras humanitarian mission, we visit homes of previous EcoStove recipients to ensure the stoves are working properly.
