Stephen O’Mahony Becomes New National Director of NPH Honduras
Steve O'Mahony succeeds Stefan Feuerstein who served as National Director for more than 10 years.
September 19, 2019 - NPH International
NPH is pleased to announce that Stephen (Steve) O’Mahony will be the next NPH Honduras National Director.
Most recently Steve served as Assistant National Director for NPH Honduras; however, in his new role, Steve will now provide strategic and operational leadership for the NPH Honduras family, while supporting the care of all children and youth in accordance with NPH’s mission, vision, principles, and values. Working closely with local staff and a support team from NPH International, he will oversee all administrative functions and a wide variety of programs like childcare, education, and family & community strengthening programs.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in computer science from University College Cork, in Cork City, Ireland. He graduated with academic honors and earned his TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) instructor certification. He went on to pursue a career in IT Project Management with an investment bank in London, England.
During this time, his aspirations took a different turn. As he learned more about the many facets of our work through a local NPH Fundraising Office and by visiting NPH Mexico as a young man, Steve says he soon became “infected with the NPH bug.”
In 2016 Steve joined the NPH Honduras volunteer cadre. His experience cemented a deep passion for the NPH mission. He transitioned to an employee role as a member of the NPH Honduras management team.
In his latest role, Steve has led the development of the San Jose Center in Mata de Platano, a new family center slated to open later this year. He also spearheaded the creation of Casa Mi Esperanza transition home. Among the many other projects he has led and supported, he worked to establish the Hombres de Honor youth development program for boys. And he put his project management and IT training to use by working to develop an accounting system that improved inventory management and reporting.
Born and raised in Limerick, Ireland, Steve is an all-around sports fan. He enjoys a number of pastimes, including golf, soccer, rugby, and snow sports.
Steve is enthusiastic to serve the NPH community in his new role: “NPH means so much to me. I would never describe it as just a ‘job.’ These children are part of my family and I am part of theirs. I thank God for the blessing He has given me to be able to spend my day working alongside a great team to make these kids’ lives better.”
Stephen assumed his new role 26 August 2019. He succeeds Stefan Feuerstein, who left NPH 6 September, having served as National Director of NPH Honduras for more than 10 years.
