Many of the children in Honduras live in extreme poverty. Those lucky enough to attend school find themselves in underfunded schools with a severe lack of supplies.
These children have no access to Children's Story Books to encourage reading and foster a love of literacy that will serve them well for their entire lives.
Leonard's Library is a boxed library of 50 books and gives young children access to high quality and engaging literature. A combination of Fiction and Non-Fiction, these books contain titles of varying difficulty to reach all levels of readers.
Your donation of $250 provides a school with a new boxed library of 50 books as well as a supply kit for the teacher. These books can open up the world to a rural Honduran child!
A donation of $50 dollars covers delivery and pickup of a boxed library to a school. Your donation covers cleaning, repair, and replacement, as well as a supply kit for the teacher.
A donation of only $10 will allow us to purchase three new Children's Books, which will be added to the Box Library. With your help, we can equip more schools with high-quality children's books.
Providing education to Honduran women impacts an entire family and the community at large. Free public education is available through grade six.
Our Futures Program provides a scholarship for a student in grades 7 - 12.
These women are often the first generation to be educated past the sixth grade. They undergo a rigorous interview process to review their grades and evaluate their family's ability to support their education.
Education is the greatest form of empowerment for these young women!
A donation of $150 will assist a student with transportation, uniforms, books, school supplies, and other needs. Your gift has the potential to change many lives!
The dedicated Teachers in Honduras work wonders with very little resources! They often go months without a paycheck and instruct very large classes with little or no supplies.
Your donation of $25 or more helps these dedicated teachers with consumable chalk supplies, markers for whiteboards, pencils, pens, construction paper, yardsticks, erasers, and reference books. These supplies are invaluable and help to provide the children with engaging, hands-on lessons.
Did you know that the simple act of washing hands with soap and water can prevent 44% of infant mortality?
Friends of Education, Honduras, assist in the distribution of hygiene kits for children and their families.
Hygiene kits include toothbrushes and soap and instruct children and their families to properly wash their hands to prevent disease.
Children learn better when they are healthy and feeling well! A donation of $15 will make a difference. It provides the cleaning and restorative dental treatment through the Salt and Light Medical/Dental Clinics, which employs Honduran doctors and nurses.
The Volunteer doctors and nurses from North Georgia Volunteers visit mountain villages to provide medical care and provide day clinics at village schools for the children and residents there. They offer medical care, including parasite treatment. They provide hygiene kits and other vital supplies to keep the children happy and healthy!
For more information about North Georgia Volunteers, contact Jim Beno at firstname.lastname@example.org
Malnutrition continues to be a problem in Honduras. Lack of adequate nutrition affects children's physical growth as well as their cognitive abilities.
Friends of Education, Honduras facilitates workshops designed to maximize nutritional benefits to the family. Workshops include Raised Bed Gardening and Soya Workshops designed to inform women about the benefit of adding soy protein to their diet in the form of soy milk, soy cheese, and adding soy flour to increase the protein content of their food. Participants of this hands-on workshop go home with a supply of soybeans to enrich their family's diet.
Your donation of $100 provides a Soy Workshop for a community and has the potential to make a difference in the lives of many families!
Another program dedicated to improving nutrition is the School Lunch Silo project. Our goal is to equip each school with one or two silos. Mothers in the villages volunteer to prepare meals each day for the children. Silo food storage is essential for keeping beans and rice safe until prepared.
Silos also help farmers keep their crops free from mildew and vermin. It is easier to keep the crops they produce on their small bit of land than to increase their land production.
Your donation of $100 provides a Silo where ever it is needed.
