In the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa, COVID-19 cases are significant. Just outside Tegucigalpa, in Nueva Suyapa, Merlyn Zuelma Zambrano cautions her daughter Estefany,18, and her son, Erlin, 12, to stay close to home to reduce their risk of contracting the virus. Estefany and Erlin do not mind; Estefany is happy to help Merlyn with chores and Erlin goes up onto the roof of the neighbour’s house where he plays inside the tent that he constructed with a bedsheet.

The rooftop has also become a classroom. To limit the spread of COVID-19, classes in Nueva Suyapa have moved online. The Zambranos do not own a computer and Estefany and Erlin must use a cell phone to get their assignments done. The rooftop provides the best lighting for online work.
