We currently have several pressing needs for our Children's Home and Jungle School.
- Children's Home - Currently, we need to complete some much needed projects at the Children's Home, such as complete/repair electrical hookups & lighting, rewiring needed in some areas, fans for some rooms, toilet paper holders, towel racks, steel or wood shelving for indoor storage room and some rooms, laundry room sinks, clotheslines with posts, curtain rods for some rooms, plumbing help needed (many loose fixtures), etc. Please consider "sponsoring" one of these projects. Ask and we will provide costs.
- A new pickup truck.Our current pickup is over 20 years old and needs to be retired. With all the hauling we do of supplies to the Children's Home, Jungle School, and Villages, we really need a new truck to keep up with the demands. Please consider donating so we can purchase a new truck here in Honduras. The cost of a new truck will run $25,000+. Please inquire for more information.
- High School scholarships for 2021. We currently have several needy high school students. We have always believed that education is one of the main ways out of poverty. Please consider sponsoring a student. Most of the students listed on our webpage, https://www.helpinghonduraskids.org/sponsor-a-child/high-school-kids are very poor and live in very impoverished conditions. Each student needs uniforms, shoes, school supplies, funds for special projects, etc. Please consider sponsoring one or more for $39/month.
- Children's Home - A new generator to help us during the constant power outages. We have several refrigerators and freezers that need to keep running during these outages. Inquire for more information.
