The first year of our high school scholarship program is complete. Three kids from Armenia Bonito completed their first year of high school within our program. The Honduran school year runs from February to November each year.
Only 1/3rd of kids in Honduras attend school beyond the 6th grade. The average person in Honduras only has 6.1 years of education. Honduras has a 50% unemployment rate and the average person makes only $3,000 a year. All high school is private and financially out of reach for most families. Because, of this it is very exciting to see three kids from the super-poor community of Armenia Bonito being afforded the opportunity to receive a high school education.
In our scholarship program these three kids received all their school supplies, uniforms, tuition, bus transportation and participated in biblical discipleship program. In 2011 we plan to offer scholarships to five high school students.
