Colonia Nueva Suyapa, Honduras – Fifteen volunteers and staff participated in Estralles para la Paz, RYS/Global Peacemaker project in Honduras. Participants had a special experience through "home stays," that is, they were integrated through daily life with Honduran families who volunteered their homes and offered breakfast meals for each participant.

The service aspect of the project included landscaping, construction, painting and furnishing of a new kitchen in a community center, as well as supervising free-time activities for the children of the community of Colonia Nueva Suyapa, in the suburbs of Tegucigalpa. The kitchen will be used by an education center for local children. The local Mormon community donated all the utensils and appliances for the kitchen.

The participants were able to experience more of the religious atmosphere of Honduras when they attended a church service and gospel concert which was held at Gothic Basilica de Suyapa in honor of their work.

The community gave back to participants at the project closing. They received gifts, kind words and smiles. After the project closing, the educators and volunteers went into the reflection period. Each participant was awarded a Certificate of Participation and Appreciation.
