Fulbright Day: Honduras – July 17

Four photos of Fulbright Honduras' alumni association activities. Text underneath in blue reads "Fulbright Day: Honduras, July 7, 2021"
The photos above illustrate the topics 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.

The Honduran Fulbright Association hosted a virtual event (in Spanish) on the Asociación Fulbright de Honduras’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/FulbrightHonduras) to share accomplishments and ongoing work of Honduran Fulbrighters and the local alumni association in the areas of education and entrepreneurship.

In this first section students who were benefited through local Honduran funds collected by the Association with their stellar program UNA BECA MAS, shared their personal experiences about completing their undergraduate degrees and how this opportunity impacted their lives. Also, this section included the entrepreneurship project called NEW GAME PLAN HONDURAS with over 30 Fulbrighters as mentors and more than 20 Small Businesses impacted. The project consisted on providing marketing and financial advising to start up companies. Two of the selected businesses shared their experiences as the recipients of this business opportunity development.

The last section included two engaging colloquia under the banner of our traditional “Café Fulbright”: Fulbright experts in the field shared their thoughts on Reviewing and Reimagining Education after a Crisis, and we closed the event with a second Café Fulbright with a focus on Honduras’s Environmental Richness and its Threats, with a special focus on the La Mosquitia Zone and Río Plátano Reserve.
