Riding through the rocky terrain, crossing small rivers and dirt roads we reached Poza Grande, a remote town who for the first time in 2010 had a complete water system installed that included pipes and flushable toilets for each household. Children of Namasigue performed a skit to promote clean water and to avoid pollution with a little production called 'Gritos - ¡cero basura!". The daughter of the Honduran Presient, representatives of Banco de Centro America and the EU, the mayor and councilmen were all in attendance. It was a humbling experience to see the excitement of the town who received basic sanitation for the first time, something as an American can be taken for granted.
A dentist volunteered her time at the elementary school of Namasigue to educate children on the importance of clean teeth.
Sunday afternoons were set aside for the women's futbol games, a league that my friend Emilie had started, which was great progress for women in the community to differentiate themselves from a machismo society.
