Fulbright Day: Honduras
The photos above illustrate the topics that will be covered during Honduras’ Fulbright Day presentation. The top two photos are associated with Fulbright Café 2, which is about La Mosquitia. The photos are of a donation that the Honduran Fulbright Association coordinated in 2020 for the victims of Hurricanes Eta and Iota in La Mosquitia. Fulbright Café 1 is about education, and the bottom right photo is of the Honduran Fulbright Association’s visit to a make a donation to a public school in Ojojona, a small down south of Tegucigalpa, where a U.S. Fulbrighter carried out an education program. The fourth photo on the bottom left is a group photo of a Christmas dinner, an annual traditional where Fulbright alumni come together to give thanks.
On Saturday July 17th, “Fulbright Day: Honduras” will bring together Fulbrighters from around the world to celebrate 75 years of the Fulbright Program, and more than 31 years of activities by Honduran Fulbrighters and the local Fulbright alumni association.
We will host a virtual event (in Spanish) on the Asociación Fulbright de Honduras’s Facebook page, to share accomplishments and ongoing work of Honduran Fulbrighters and the local alumni association in the areas of education and entrepreneurship. We will also host two engaging colloquia under the banner of our traditional “Café Fulbright”: Fulbright experts in the field will share their thoughts on reviewing and reimagining education after a crisis, and will close the event with a focus on Honduras’s environmental richness and its threats, with a special focus on the La Mosquitia zone and Río Plátano reserve.
