Building Schools in Honduras
Education is the key to the future of Honduras, but many villages have poor or no schools available to their children. We have partnered with Students Helping Honduras and Sacramento Presbytery's campus ministry to build schools in Honduras.
In 2016 we worked with Elk Grove Presbyterian Church and raised the money to to fund the building of an entire school in the village of La Lima! A team of adults broke ground on the school in January and participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Other groups working with Students Helping Honduras and locals helped continue the project, and in August our young adults and college students arrived to finish laying the floors and painting!
We successfully built another school in 2017 at the Esteban Moya middle and high school in El Progreso.
Another group of adults will be heading to Honduras in February to break ground on the new high school in Villa Soleada, with the young adults completing the school in early August.
Know a student or young adult who wants to help build in summer 2018? Email us their name and contact info.
