While we are really disappointed not to be able to go back to Honduras again this year, we were totally excited at the prospect of returning to Hogar de Niñas María Madre de Dios in Bonao, Monseñor Noel province, Dominican Republic. We visited for the first time in 2013 when our trip to Honduras was cancelled because of security concerns and we returned last year, and both times we had a great trip! Hogar de Niñas is home to 39-70 girls whose ages range from 4 to 22. The last two years we got to know the girls and painted inside and out in addition to organizing English and computer classes for the girls. In 2017 we expect to do a little more painting and continue the lessons, and we will probably end up doing other work around the compound (wee want to work on the garden, too).  Watch this space for details!

Just think of us as DominicanRepublic/Honduras Project and we are still DHP. . .



Bonao is in the center of the country, about an hour from the major airports. We will be staying in a small hotel on the edge of town close to the childen’s home, and eating lunch and dinner with the children.Screen Shot 2013-05-02 at 12.51.13 AM
