The Latest PIER Newsletter


Dear friend of PIER, 

We are happy to share with you our July newsletter, it contains the summary of our most important activities held during the months of January through June.

Our new logo!

At #PIER we are proud to announce the launch of our new logo, as part of the visualization of who we are and what we do as an organization . We aspire to bring inspiration and a solid educational foundation to students in the Bay Islands of Honduras. 

Our logo highlights 4 key aspects in our organization: partnerships, community outreach; in addition to 2 of our flagship programs, Bookmobiles and Teachers Training. Symbolically, the framing used is a shield, in order to emphasize the responsibility that PIER has towards protecting the children of the Bay Islands.

New faces at PIER!

We at PIER are very thrilled to announce two new staff members. Timna Varela as Executive Director and Byron Brooks as the Teacher & Tutoring Specialist. Perhaps they are familiar faces to many of you. Both  have the qualifications and experience that will strengthen our current programs and upcoming initiatives. We are so excited about having them in our team, welcome aboard!

“The resilience of the Bay Islands communities  have inspired me  to  join the local movement that strives for quality education. I would like to contribute my small grain of sand, developing the ways that  teachers and students  can face their challenges and seize the opportunities that arise.”

Timna Varela - Executive Director 

"All my life so far has been focused on the common good, of bringing about the collective welfare of my fellow Bay Islanders and Hondurans. To do so, I chose the greatest profession that exist in the world, I became a teacher."

Byron Brooks -  Teacher & Tutoring Specialist
