The following is part of our series featuring the community participants in the various programs we support. It is through their hard, voluntary, work that leads to sustainable change in their community.
The following was written by Vecinos Honduras and translated by Mary Doyle.
Onelba is a 34 year old woman who lives in the community of Casas Nuevas where she is dedicated to household activities.
Since 2010 she has worked in community development initiating participation with World Vision in another community. In 2015 she moved to Casas Nuevas where she learned about the work of Vecinos Honduras. She began to participate in community meetings involved with training in basic sanitation issues, child growth and development, food preparation and improved stoves. In 2016 she became involved in child welfare as a volunteer health monitor and has been helping children in the community ever since.
Onelba studied at school until grade nine and she enjoys participating in community meetings and training sessions to learn and experience new topics of interest.
