Your £50 donation will provide a school manual, currently costing £14 for primary students and £20 for secondary students; shoes; uniform; rucksack and school supplies.
For the older children, who attend college in the city, we also give help towards bus fares and, if necessary, an inexpensive watch.
Education in Honduras is not compulsory but is recognized as a very valuable opportunity which, due to the high hidden costs involved, is often denied to children who do not have access to outside help. It is these children that we try to help with sponsorship.
In Honduras the school year runs from February to November. Although education ‘free’ in Honduras, it is only accessible to those children who have a school uniform along with the required books and stationary.
There are two options available:
A) Sponsorship for a full year (£50) or
B) A half-year option (£25) where, to cover the year, we match 2 sponsors to the same child.
