former peace corps volunteers

Eddie, his wife Kelley, both former peace corps volunteers and their daughter Sonrisa, drove a retired school bus loaded with tools and equipment to Guaimaca, Honduras in 1996. The plan was to live and teach in Guaimaca for five years. Five, turned into thirteen, and besides leaving behind many very good friends, the O’Toole’s left a small piece of property in the barrio of Nueva Esperanza,Guaimaca, with a library and a larger building with classroom and shop space for technical classes. Recognized by the Honduran government as a non- profit organisation in 2004, the Centro Capacitacion Nueva Esperanza, has made major donations to communities all around Honduras.

The following is an outline of our work in Honduras. As time goes on, I will write more about each item, but for now, enjoy the site, if you have any questions feel free to e-mail me at eddie56@gmail.com.

Shipments

Currently- we have collected equipment and supplies to fill another 40ft container. Doors and lighting for the Tolupan Indian Hospital, carpentry equipment and tools for CCNE’s school table and chair program, and at least two ambulance reconstruction powertrains. Now I need to raise the money to ship all this to Guaimaca.
September 3rd,2013- We shipped a 40ft container that brought bananas up to Watertown, New York, and then on the way back to Delaware and then Honduras, gave us time to pack 300 theater chairs, 6 hospital beds, 2 dental chairs, 3 dental x-ray units, 15 white boards and much much more, eliminating all air space and then delivered that container to the school district of La Esperanza Intibuca.
