After-School Program

 

In Honduras only 15% of the children actually enter the seventh grade. There are two primary reasons. The parents do not understand or stress to their children a need for education and the educational system is marginal.

Promise Home is located in the small village of El Portillo where over 25% of the adults are unemployed and most are uneducated. There is a small school located in our village that has about fifty children in the K-6th grade.

Promise Home After School Program Students

In June of 2016, we started an after school program that encourages the children to stay in school, tutor the children and exposes the children and their parents to Christ. The students use the Compassion International educational materials and program.

So, on Thursday and Fridays about 60 children walk to Promise Home where we provide a lunch and a two and a half hour tutoring program.

Before we started the first day of class, we visited each parent in their home explaining our program, our passion for keeping their child in school and our love for Christ.

It is a great program that we hope will help us transform our community.  Will you help us help these children?

You can help with your prayers, bring a team to minister to the children or donate.
