I was invited to join a group of 23 Miami Country Day School students and staff members and director of the international programs, Glen Turf, on an immemorable mission to an orphanage in Nuevo Paraíso, Morocelí, Honduras.
Together with the students and three staff members we spent a week on work projects (our main goal was to build a wall around one of the houses) and after work and during the breaks we spent time with the children. The week was filled with work and time spent with the orphaned children who are loved and nurtured at Nuevo Paraíso.
In 2023 November The English School high school students will have the opportunity to participate in the program in Honduras with some days in Miami before and after the excursion.
If you are an Engs high school student and already have a feeling that you would like to do something that you’ve never done before, to give and get so much in return from the children and staff at Nuevo Paraíso, come to talk with director Petri Vuorinen or principal Seija Nyholm – or simply sign up already for the excursion in November 2023!
