ERDO ChildCARE Plus child sponsorship in Honduras

ChildCARE Plus in Honduras

Working with PAOC Global Worker Kathy Mizen, ERDO is assisting over 230 children through ChildCARE Plus child sponsorship through Schools of Hope Ministry in Tegucigalpa, the capital city of Honduras.

ChildCARE Plus fills a critical need in the lives of children who are wishing to go on past grade six when the cost of education increases beyond what most families can provide.

Through a $41 monthly donation, a child can attend school and be spiritually nurtured by our on-the-ground ChildCARE Plus community representatives.

Special Programs for Children - Classroom Sponsorship

In addition to sponsorship of individual children, CCP in Honduras offers the option of monthly sponsorship of a classroom.  This sponsorship is also $41 per month, but helps an entire class as a group through provision of teaching aids and school supplies. Classroom sponsorship makes a huge difference to the quality of education received in the schools. These schools do not have the money to provide text books, educational supplies, pictures for walls or playground equipment.  It is often up to the teacher of the class to purchase these items with their own money.  Classroom sponsorship works well for those who want to help a group of children instead of an individual child.

Classroom Nutrition: School Feeding Program

This School Feeding Program is run through local schools, currently running the CCP child sponsorship program, and is designed to subsidize the 7-month food deficit in the government program by providing much needed nutrition through a CSB drink for 1,440 children each morning. 

This project focuses on the children of the urban poor living on the outskirts of the capital city of Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The schools are in the mountainous range that circles Tegucigalpa. The majority of the households (70%) in the area are single female headed and live on less than 5 dollars a day.
