An elongated evening we were sitting at the bar in the Viavia Café in Copán Ruinas, intrigued by the stories of the poverty of Honduras. Listening to the big efforts An van Wesenbeek was doing for a social project named Casita Copán, it became clear to us that we found the social project we were looking for. We have the opportunity to do something more than just traveling, just visiting places and writing a blog about that. We are well aware of social, political and economic differences in the countries we traveled and therefor absolutely convinced that we and our “Hermes’ Journey-followers” can do something to give a better future to this world. We visited Casita Copán with An and it was a great day.
The children were all playing and by this learning about a lot of things as the social helpers were patiently explaining everything the kids wanted to know. It looked all perfect… if it wasn’t for the fact that they need lots of material and help. Emily, the project manager, has set up a sponsoring system on monthly bases for those who really want to get involved more. But for those who just want to make one donation we also have a solution: what we felt is the need for a kind of child-library for those who can read, for those who start to read and for those who can’t read yet. A book is something that doesn’t get lost in time and can get read over and over again. We are positive, after seen the arrangement and good organization at the place that books will last long and will pass to different generations of ‘Casita Copán-Children’. So our goal is to save and get money through donations to install a library.
By clicking the blue Casita Copán-logo at the right side at the homepage any dollar, euro, pound sterling, ruble, peso, rupia, yuan,… will help these kids!!! If you donate just write ‘the hermesjourney library’ as commentary so together we can save for their library.
