My hands-down, all-time, favorite organization in the world is Students Helping Honduras. I cannot begin to describe to you the difference that this organization has made in the lives of my students, myself and numerous communities across Honduras. When going to do humanitarian work abroad we think we can help others, but in reality every humanitarian knows that the work you do abroad helps you grow, learn and understand the world a little better each time.
Big shout-out to my amazing friend Shin Fujiyama for all the amazing work he has done and continues to do in Villa Soleada and the rest of Honduras. He is such a visionary, and such a wonderful human being that I am honored to call myself his friend.
Here is a video I made from a past trip with students from Mountain View High School in Stafford, Virginia.
