Mashav alumnus returns to Israel as president of Honduras

Mashav, Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation, has alumni who have risen to high positions in their home countries, but according to President Reuven Rivlin, none has returned to Israel until now as the head of his or her country.

The exception is Honduras President Juan Orlando Hernández, who, accompanied by several of his country’s ministers, called on Rivlin at the latter’s official residence on Thursday.

Hernandez won a scholarship in the early 1990s to attend a Mashav young leadership program, which has obviously paid off.
