Monday is the first day of school for the kids in Honduras. With the generous help of supporters in the U.S. we are providing scholarships so that four kids from Armenia Bonito can attend high school.
In Honduras education is compulsory up to sixth grade. The only way to attend school beyond the sixth grade is to pay for a private school. However, the average person in Honduras makes less than $3,000 a year. So, unfortunately, many parents must choose buying rice and beans for their family over sending their children to school. Understandably, providing education for the kids looses out to survival more times than not. Only 1/3 of the children in Honduras attend school beyond the sixth grade.
Please pray for our four scholarship kids as they start school on Monday – Walter(14), Jorge(12), Nancy(12) and Alicia(16). We are praying that through this opportunity these kids will be future leaders in Armenia Bonito to help to raise the standards for everyone.
If you are interested in sponsoring a child please print this form, fill it out and mail it in. The school year runs from February to November.
