Where the Caravan Began: An Evening Journey to Honduras with BECA
April 26, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$60
Join Bilingual Education for Central America (“BECA”), a 501(c)(3) non-profit, for a conversation that moves past walls and beyond borders. In today’s world of deepening inequity, so many Central American families are being torn apart by the need to risk a dangerous journey north to provide for their families or keep them safe – a journey that offers no guarantees for safe arrival. But, there are other paths forward and BECA is one of them. Join us as we journey through dialogue to Honduras to meet the students, families, and teachers who are collaborating every day in BECA’s three community-led bilingual schools.
Meet BECA’s new CEO, Monique Turner Lopez, as she interviews regional and educational experts. Learn how BECA and our community partners are offering a different path – to financial and social wellness through education. Hear too from BECA teaching alumni about how their time in Honduras has shaped their many different professional and personal pathways. And, enjoy great beverages, food, and music while supporting an incredibly worthwhile cause.
Bilingual Education for Central America exists to promote cultural exchange and affordable bilingual education. Our volunteer-driven bilingual school model creates an environment in which Central American students learn from dedicated volunteer teachers, and those volunteers learn from the community in which they are immersed.
