Casa Student Update: Noel Romero

We are so proud of the students in our Comayagua Boys Project. Noel is one of our oldest boys in the project and he is currently completing an internship at the new international airport in Comayagua laying electrical lines. 

In his own words, translated from Spanish, here’s what Noel had to say about the internship: 

“Each of us has to complete a professional internship. My internship began on September 20 at the airport in Palmerola, which is being built in the city of Comayagua. I have to be there Monday-Saturday, from 8 a.m. -5 p.m. On Saturdays, I go in at 1 in the afternoon, and when there is a lot of work the engineer asks us to stay until 5 p.m.

In the morning, I get up and thank God for the new day that he has given me! I get up at 5:30 in the morning, bathe, and get ready. Then I make my breakfast and coffee, and also lunch to take it and eat at my internship. Then Chema takes me to the bus station and I take a bus 20 minutes to my internship.

At work, we have to put pipes for wiring for the cable company, which specializes in telephone lines and security cameras. When the day is over, I have to wait for a bus that goes to Comayagua, then the bus leaves me at a gas station. From there I have to walk until I get home. I will spend a month doing my internship. 

Thanks to God and thanks to all of you who are always supporting me and my housemates! Thanks for always being with us. Thanks to you, I have already almost fulfilled one of my first dreams! I am very grateful to the entire board of directors of Casa de Esperanza. May God bless you and give you health.” 

Thank you for your support of our students!
