Grandma’s Kids started in 2005 when HHK began assisting Grandmas in the north coastal Cangrejal River Area. Since then, Grandma’s Kids has grown to support many children living with several Grandmas. HHK identifies family groups at risk and provides support and supplies to their caregivers. One of the key concerns in this program is the epidemic rise of HIV/AIDS which is the second most common cause of death is Honduras. Some of these children have lost caregivers and loved ones due to HIV/AIDS. Donations go to support these “home” environments with loving Grandmas, food, medical care, clothing, school supplies, school uniforms, and school fees so children are able to stay in school and become more educated.
Helping Honduras Kids is a 501 c3 organization headquartered in the USA, and as such your donations may be tax deductible. You will immediately receive a receipt by email for tax purposes. Because we do not receive government funding, we rely totally on individuals to sponsor a child for $39 per month or make donations toward specific projects. Volunteers are also needed. Sponsorship is often a rewarding experience for both sponsor and child. The needy children in our care will enjoy sharing letters, pictures, and talking by Skype, it’s all up to you and what you would like. You do not need to speak Spanish as we can provide translation assistance. Please take a moment to review the photos and profiles and give the gift of hope by sponsoring one of these beautiful children. We have additional children in need of sponsorship in our Jungle School (very poor and often malnourished children), a Grandma’s kids family (poor children without parents), or those who have graduated from the Jungle School and now need money and encouragement to attend and complete high school. Thank you and God Bless, Dr. David Ashby, Founder, Helping Honduras Kids
