Mobilizer. Motivator. Change agent. Counterpart #50FORWARD Hero.

Onasis Keusen’s community in Honduras used to be one of the most dangerous parts of the region. Violent gangs created a place where parents were afraid to send their kids to school and municipal officials did not visit because of fear for their own safety. Onasis wanted to make a change. He formed a community revitalization committee as part of Counterpart’s Impactos¬†project, which was only the beginning to creating lasting, positive¬†change.

He helped people believe in their community and their right to live free of violence.
