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!
