EXPLORING OUR NEW AMIGOS WEBSITE!


For the last 3 years I, Loren Hintz, created and managed a free weebly web site for Amigos de Honduras. It lacked an option for paying on line and limited file size of posts. A number of RPCVs requested an option for joining Amigos on line and for doing online donations to the Grant Fund. Our Treasurer Tony Ives hired Arber Metuku and Amanda Myftarago to design and create a modern website. Brenda, Fred, Tony and I provided content and ideas.

First a few reminders or requests. The website is housed under Wix.com. We use DonorBox and Stripe for processing payments. We are charged 1.75%. To avoid processing fee, mail a check! You can still mail paper checks and send emails or letters directly to us. The Website is in both English EN and Spanish ES but the Spanish has been created by Google Translate and has not yet been checked by us for accuracy. Please volunteer to provide future content and to help edit. We are in the process of trouble shooting mistakes. Remember Amigos de Honduras is a volunteer effort. Be patient. Gracias.
