In episode 25 of The Charity Charge Show, Stephen Garten chats with Michelle Monroe, the Executive Director of the Abundant Life Foundation.
The Abundant Life Foundation is a philanthropic organization fueled by passion and a genuine love for the community on the Island of Roatán. Roatán is located 40 miles off the northern coast of Honduras. The organizations work is focused across three primary initiatives: education, community and conservation. The foundation identifies opportunities to make the most impact, and take a long-term, community-driven approach with the goal of providing sustainable solutions, building upon the skills of community members, and leading to personal and community growth and well-being.
Since the foundations first days on the island of Roatán, their involvement has been providing scholarships and support motivated students to pursue an education. To further the efforts of making a positive impact in the Bay Islands, the foundation then added community development and, finally, conservation to preserve the 2nd largest reef system in the world, the Mesoamerican Coral Reef.
