Fuller Alumna Doing Great Things in Honduras

One Fuller MDiv Grad is bringing quality education to Honduras' impoverished, violent capital

Alum Emily Steenwyk Romero

In the poverty-stricken and crime-ridden capital of Tegucigalpa, Honduras, adults average only six and half years of formal education. Roughly half of the school-aged population completes elementary school. Emily Romero (MACCS '09), who holds a masters degree from Fuller, and her husband David operate a school in a small, mountainside neighborhood of Tegucigalpa. The school is in its fourth year and serves 170 students. The school's goals are "to offer educational opportunities that give hope and freedom, and to share Christ who gives the ultimate hope and freedom."
