The Plan

SISTER MARIA ROSA'S CONCEPT OF SMALL GROUP HOMES OF NO MORE THAN TEN OR 12 CHILDREN EACH CREATES A SENSE OF FAMILY WITHIN EVERY HOUSE.

FHC board members lead mission teams to Honduras at least annually to help keep up with maintenance on SAN's existing children's homes and schools and work on new construction, in addition to conducting medical, food, and school brigades in rural villages. Some of our favorite projects to work on or help with:

  • Raising sections of a brick security wall to shelter and protect 200 children at Nuevo Paraiso village
  • Renovating the bathrooms serving 45 children in the Pedro Atala homes
  • Providing new desks and an air-conditioned computer lab for the Nuevo Paraiso School of more than 200 students
  • Painting some part, inside or out, of at least half the homes at Nuevo Paraiso
  • Renovating the chapel at Nuevo Paraiso
  • Building part of a bodega (storeroom), gatehouse, and new home for a single mother with special-needs children
  • Digging a drainage canal to save a Nuevo Paraiso dining hall from flooding
