Ryan and Brent Move to Honduras

As of Thursday, February 4, 2010, Ryan and Brent have relocated to La Ceiba, Honduras to launch our business operations there as Energía Para Aldeas, which means Energy for Villages. The first task was to prepare for a meeting with a Honduran non-profit organization, AHPPER, with whom we applied for and won a large grant from the Inter-American Development Bank and GVEP International. Saturday night they met with AHPPER and went to one of our village systems, Danta Uno. A television crew came along and took video for use by the granting agency, GVEP International. In the evening they went back to our favorite restaurant in La Ceiba, a place called La Ponderosa. Our favorite waiter, Jorge, took care of them.

The plan for Sunday is for them to travel to Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras, to work with the AHPPER attorneys to get Energía Para Aldeas (EPA) legally incorporated and begin the process of getting residency for the guys.
