HONDURAS CHILDREN'S PROJECT

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.

OUR WORK AT COPPROME

Honduras Children’s Project staff at Copprome Orphanage includes two teachers, five teaching assistants, and one administrator to work with the children in our after-school program. We are paying for two of our Copprome staff members to attend a nearby university. We sponsor one Copprome child to attend a bilingual private school and two teenagers to attend a trade school. We provide school supplies and uniforms to the children at the orphanage. 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 multi-functional printer, a whiteboard, and numerous school supplies. We maintain close ties with the children and our staff by visiting Copprome three to four times a year.

WE’RE ON THE GROUND IN HONDURAS

Honduras can be a challenging environment and at times is not for the feint of heart but there is much more good in the world than bad and we see it first hand every time we visit. We believe it is not enough to just send money to Honduras and hope for the best. We’re engaged and we visit the orphanage, the now seven schools our children attend, shop with our teachers for school supplies and uniforms, take our kids on both educational and recreational trips and much more. We visit the orphanage 3-4 times a year typically.
