Supporting Honduran children at risk
is a labor of love.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help provide the most vulnerable children in Honduras with health, safety, education, and hope for a secure future.

 

Our Approach

We work in partnership with Honduras-based Sociedad Amigos de Los Niños (SAN) and other groups to provide food, clothing, shelter, and education to enable these children to lead self-sufficient and productive lives as adults.

 

Our Projects

  • Administration of child sponsorship

  • Funding of a scholarship and education fund for promising students to attend university in Honduras and abroad

  • Business planning for micro-enterprises
  • Development of marketing and grant materials to attract donors and sponsors

  • A medical study of asthma among Honduran children

  • Organization and leadership of mission trips to help with construction of SAN homes or food, medical and education brigades

  • Creation of a computer education and refurbishment center to teach computer use and repair

  • Hosting of a biannual Friends Gala dinner, dance, and silent auction to benefit SAN and FHC’s education and other special funds

If we believe in what we are doing, if we are exactly clear that the Lord is there in our work, helping us, giving us the strength we need—there will never be a problem. Love and faith can do anything in the world.
— Sister Maria Rosa
