Applications are due by December 31, 2017

Job Description:

Breaking Chains is seeking individuals to serve as lead interns for a summer-long internship. Lead interns will be responsible for:

Following an application and interview process, the selected lead interns will each receive a $1,000 scholarship. The scholarship will be transferred directly to the student’s supporting church congregation for use in aiding with fundraising costs for the summer internship or whatever other area the student deems most appropriate.

●     Internship length: 2.5 months. Must be available to intern beginning May 15, 2018 and ending July 31, 2018.
●     Interns are responsible for raising their own funds (outside of the $1,000 scholarship).  A typical 2.5 month internship requires $2,500 to cover the cost of airfare, rent and utilities contribution, and food and leisure costs while in the country.
●     Applications must be submitted by December 31, 2017. All lead interns must submit an application, and complete an interview and background check. ·

Bilingual kids head back to school!

Our bilingual school kids headed back to school last week! We are so thankful to each of their sponsors for making these smiles possible. We sent them off with tears of joy to see how much excitement the previous kids had introducing our new kids to Integrity Academy! Please continue to pray for these children throughout the year as they grow academically and personally. Please pray that God fills them with strength, patience, humility and motivation. We are so proud of each of these kids and can't wait to see what they accomplish this year!

Please consider sponsoring one of our 2017-2018 bilingual school students!

Just like in the U.S., it is back to school time for some of our BC education students! We were incredibly blessed this year to be able to enroll more than 20 children (many of whom are pictured above) in different education outlets thanks to generous sponsors. While some are midway through their year in regular private school which runs February to November, the new bilingual school year will begin later this month. We currently have five students in need of full or partial sponsorship. Please take a look at the profiles below and consider whether you could contribute toward their educations. 

Each child enrolled in bilingual school needs a one-time donation of $600 to cover upfront costs and a $150 monthly donation to cover tuition and transportation. Some students listed below already have a portion of their overall sponsorship covered, while others still need the full amount. Sponsors may choose to contribute the full cost or a smaller level of support which can be combined with other donors to create a full sponsorship. 

As we watch the students in the education program grow over the years, it is clear that a quality education not only helps them progress academically; it also increases their confidence and opens up their dreams for the future. It is a challenge at times (like it is for all kids) to stay the course, but God continues to shower His grace and provide incredible support through the students’ teachers, tutors, the BC staff, and our wonderful U.S. sponsors.

We are excited for this academic year, both for the returning students and the new additions, and we hope that you can be a part of it. We ask that you please prayerfully consider sponsoring one of these students on their academic journey. If you have any questions, please contact

Thank you!

Help send our BC church kiddos back to school by contributing toward school supplies!

It’s that time of year again! It’s back to school time in Honduras, and we need your help making sure the kids Breaking Chains serves have the supplies they need to succeed.

We are so blessed to spend our Sundays with many children who worship with us as a part of our BC church family. We love being able to share God’s word, love and community with them each week. (You can see some of their sweet faces here.) The majority of these children come from very low-income families and difficult life circumstances. We know, though, that one of the keys to a brighter future is education.  

The Honduran school year runs February to November, which means that most kids will head back to school soon. Although public education in Honduras is technically free (meaning there is no monthly tuition), the families are still responsible for providing school supplies and uniforms for their children. A typical school supply list for one child costs around $50 to fulfill. That may not sound like a lot, but multiply that by a few children per family and it becomes an almost insurmountable burden for parents who already struggle and live in poverty.

This year, we are seeking to fulfill school supply lists for 150 to 200 children. Last year, through your generosity, we were able to supply more than 150 children with the supplies they needed for school! We were blown away by the support, and so was our BC church family. As mentioned, each list requires around $50 to fulfill. We ask that you please consider giving in whatever way you are capable in order to give these kids a great start to their school year. We will total all of the contributions given and buy supplies for as many students as funds allow.

This may seem like a simple one-time donation, but it has lasting effects. Having all of the necessary supplies will sustain a student throughout the school year. And with each level of school completed, the student will grow in knowledge, in esteem and in hope for the future.

If you would like to make a one-time donation, you may do so online via the donate page of the website. Just click on the donate button and enter whatever amount you would like to give. If you prefer to make a check donation, simply make the check payable to “Breaking Chains Honduras” and mail to P.O. Box 20454 Oklahoma City, OK 73156.

We are continually humbled by your support and your choice to stand alongside Breaking Chains and those it serves. Thank you for partnering with us!
