Build a High School

Mayor Potencial has been working hard over the years to fundraise to build a high school in the small rural village of El Rodeito. Currently, there exists only a primary School, and the nearest high school is over an hour and a half walk away through the rocky and steep mountains of Honduras. Because of the difficulty to access a higher education, many students do not have the opportunity to go to high school. Thus, they are not able to achieve their greatest potential.

Helping Arnol’s family

Sadly, one of our dear Honduran friends, 19 year old Arnol Valle, passed away in March, after battling terminal brain cancer for many years. Mayor Potencial was able to help Arnol pursue treatment. The family is deeply grateful for all of the support. However, as they continue to grieve, they are also facing the last of his medical bills. This is a GoFundMe campaign.

This is the second year that MP has partnered with Cape Cares to provide dental and medical care to the community of El Rodeito and nearby areas. The dental clinic was set up for three days in February, at the current Elementary School, Ramon Rosa, to do cleanings and extractions.

The medical brigade was set up in Los Encinitos. Hondurans from 44 surrounding villages, or 707 patients, received care over four days!
