Edwin Escoto with a painting of a plantain by Mary Procter. During the trip we learned that Edwin believes art has the potential to be an important element of the Vecinos program to encourage self-awareness and empowerment. Unfortunately there isn’t have much funding for it. Mary and Bill hope to share ideas from some of the projects TCP travelers have led during past trips to the TCP communities.

During a visit in to Washington DC in 2015 Edwin explains how other VH staff members will work for short periods in the TCP communities. In early 2016 two staff members led workshops on nutrition, building improved stoves and sinks, and planting vegetable gardens.
Edwin Escoto explains how the Vecinos Honduras program expands into neighboring communities.
Vecinos Honduras currently operates in the three departments (states) in southeastern Honduras. The Trinidad Conservation Project is in the western department of Santa Barbara. Including TCP was an act of vision by Edwin Escoto.
