HOI, Inc. is a nondenominational, nonprofit Christian organization headquartered in Tucker, Georgia. One of its bases of operation, Rancho el Paraiso, is in central Honduras. At this location and the surrounding villages, HOI's staff focuses on six active programs: medical, education, spiritual life, agriculture, community development, and short-term missions. Depending on the projects specified for the village you will work with, your team may do one or more of the following: mix cement to provide floors and latrines for families; build chimneys, roofs, and/or room additions; serve a family by helping create gardens for their homes; and conduct Bible studies for children or adults. To commemorate the projects completed by your team and community members, you may end your time with a party in the village.

We are looking for 25 people to serve. Teams are made up of parent/student pairs, with students who are currently in 7th grade and who are involved in Transit. The team must include someone with medical experience (CPR certified). In addition, 2 Spanish-speaking individuals per team would be extremely helpful, but not required.
