Wilmer, an 11-year old boy from central Honduras, recently became the first child sponsored through our new website. In less than two weeks, Wilmer has gone from playing on dirt streets to playing a leadership role within his community.
On Monday, September 1, 2015, Wilmer helped lead a ceremony celebrating Flag Day in Honduras in his town's main public square. Ceremonies like this one happen across Honduras every Flag Day, one of the country's main national holidays. Celebrated since 1866, Flag Day ceremonies commemorate the introduction of the first leader of Honduras. We're hopeful that Wilmer, with the help of his sponsorship through the Connect Hope program, will become part of a new generation of leaders in Honduras. We're proud of you, Wilmer!
