Students Helping Honduras - Page Text Content

BI: Dear Friends and Family, Over my spring break, I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Honduras. With Students Helping Honduras, I was able to visit one of the state orphanages, an experience that changed my life. The sights and smells at the orphanage were disturbing, far worse than what I could have imagined. According to UNICEF, there are over 170,000 orphans living in Honduras. In 2011, SHH began work on a children's home to provide a safe shelter for children who have been orphaned, abandoned, affected by extreme violence, or otherwise cannot be with their families. The boy's home in Villa Soleada currently houses 12 boys. These boys were removed from the state orphanage after a fire and now live in a family-like environment with a housemother where they receive 3 nutritious meals a day. The children also are able to go to school, receive afternoon tutoring sessions, and become part of the community soccer program. While I was in Honduras, I helped to build a protective wall around the girl's home so that it can soon be opened safely. SHH hopes to have the capacity to house up to 50 children by 2015. Your donation will help each child in the home become self-sufficient adults, with a university degree or some sort of vocational training instead of being left on the streets with the threats of gangs, violence, and kidnapping. Thank you so much for your contribution. I hope to return to Honduras to continue this mission in December.
