THE CURRENT SITUATION
Honduras is located in Central America, between Guatemala and Nicaragua and borders the Gulf of Fonseca (North Pacific Ocean) and the Caribbean Sea. Honduras is roughly the size of Tennessee and ranks as one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. The country suffers from massive unemployment and illiteracy, as well as violence. Drug trafficking and crime are fueled by poverty and rising unemployment. Approximately 65% of Hondurans live in poverty while 85% of adults are undereducated. Those born into poverty have little opportunity to change their lives, or improve their circumstances without intervention or education.
When you financially support The Hearts For Honduras School, the at-risk youth of La Entrada, Honduras are afforded an alternative path. In addition to offering a well-rounded education and spiritual guidance, every student enjoys a nutritious meal every day, vitamins, basic medical and dental care and community/family programming. Additionally, your support extends to the family every student.
Help us fuel the La Entrada community with education, moral support and hope for a poverty-free future.
