WHAT TO EXPECT

Our Next Trip

The 2019 Wilderness Team trip - Saturday, March 16 through Saturday, March 23 - is open to anyone who wishes to join. The group flies in and out of the airport in Tegucigalpa. The Wilderness Team supports the work of the HAVE Foundation, which helps fund the educational needs is in a remote and needy area of the world.

For over 20 years, we have traveled over treacherous dirt mountain roads that have now been paved, and the four hour jeep rides to deliver messages from Juticalpa to the ranch have been replaced with cell phones. Where there were no schools, there is now a wonderful school with beautiful students, landscaping and the Honduran version of Vince Dooley Field. The times spent in the Hotel Honduras in Juticalpa, with streams of water and rodents running around your room and exposed electric wires in the showers are long gone. Life on the trip is more comfortable but the work done by the Wilderness Team is more important than ever before. There are now approximately 60 travelers each trip, enough people to accomplish a massive amount of work in a week, while also having a great time.

We spend an inspiring week on the ranch operated by HOI (www.hoi.org) in the beautiful Agalta Valley doing our good deeds for the year, making new friends and working hard in the schools, clinic and villages. We have lots of work to do and lots of fun doing it.

We work hard to help the people of the Agalta Valley served by our hosts, HOI. The ranch where we stay is very comfortable. We have hot and cold running water, electricity and even wi-fi.

Most of our work will be in the schools, medical clinics or villages and our important clean water project continues. We are also planning some side trips.

We would love for you to join us! Write to our team leader, Bob Hope, at bhope@hopebeckham.com. The cost of the trip is $800 and you book your own airfare. It is an amazing experience that changes lives of both the Hondurans and our teammates.
