My primary project while in Juticalpa was to work with the village of Panuaya to improve community participation within the Patronato (village council), disaster preparation within the community, and to find funding for a potable water project. I facilitated the establishment of basic meeting and village council norms, created a disaster preparation plan, made the first GPS/GIS map of Panuaya, and helped gain financing from USAID for a 13 km water project that provided clean water from Rio Comunayaca to 3 communities (Comunayaca, Panuaya, and Santa Lucia). This project, worked on completely by the community was completed in November 2001 and apparently has expanded since I left to include other communities such as El Caliche and Tapiquile. While working in Panuaya, I also helped the village council obtain financing for 2 new classrooms for the elementary school. Panuaya.gif Other projects included work with the Department of Community Development to work on a disaster preparation plan for the entire municipality of Juticalpa. My original counterpart was Dr. Mejia Bravo but within a few months he left the position and I changed my counterpart to Jessica Aleida Estrada, Director of Information and Computation. She has worked at City Hall for 10 years (1998 - 2008). I also worked with the neighborhood "Las Acacias" to organize its neighborhood council and gain financing from the municipality for a sewer project for stormwater runoff. This project was completed in 2001.

Secondary projects included working as a soccer coach and English teacher at the ABC Soccer School (Escuela de Futbol ABC). I worked with Day Star Bilingual School students to explain the basic concepts of architecture and city planning. I worked with the Catholic University and at the Instituto Juticalpa as an English Professor.
