Honduras Children's Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the education for the children of Copprome Orphanage in El Progreso, Honduras by providing them with an educational after-school program and by supporting the public elementary school they attend.
Honduras Children’s Project has hired a teacher and two teaching assistants to work with the children in the after-school program. We are paying for Oscar Sanchez, a Copprome graduate, to attend university and return to teach the children. We have brought school supplies, uniforms, and three laptop-computers to the orphanage, in addition to providing for the special-education assistance of 14 children. In support of Dr. Jose Angel Zuniga Huete School (the children's elementary school), Honduras Children's Project has purchased 40 desks, 20 fans, a color multifunctional printer, a whiteboard, and numerous school supplies.
Through several fundraising projects, we raise over $25,000 each year. We host Spaghetti and Chicken Dinners, sell chocolate-covered bacon at the Durham Fair, host an annual Golf Tournament (Swing for Honduras), and sell our “trashy products” and other hand-made Honduran products at local craft fairs and bazaars.
