Resilience: the ability of individuals to bounce back from adversity stronger than before. We have seen this concept working overtime for a year and a half as the world builds a path to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and other global emergencies. In 2020 alone, a number of overwhelming disasters affected over 98 million people. Natural and man-made disasters such as hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, civil unrest, tornadoes and more have devastated communities.

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (Nov. 11, 2021) Seven women who are among the 15 graduates of a driving school in Honduras funded by Food For The Poor donors are on the road to obtaining well-paying jobs as truck drivers to support their families.

The women recently completed four months of training at the Puerto Cortes Transportation School.

Before FFTP donors provided scholarships for their schooling, many of the women were forced to drop out to work temporary jobs to make ends meet.

They lost out on opportunities to earn a decent income because they lacked the required certification to obtain a job driving a truck.
