As we’ve mentioned before, we strongly believe that a solid education is a huge key to breaking the cycle of poverty for families living in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. We aren’t able to help every child with private education, so we are also seeking to help some other families succeed right where they are in public education.
Public education in Honduras is typically free, but the high cost of school supplies and uniforms often keeps families from being able to send their children to school. This year, we would like to help with some of that burden by covering the school supply costs for 30 to 50 families who worship with us at Breaking Chains.
The cost per school supply list is around $50, and many families have more than one child. We are currently collecting lists from our church members and will purchase as many supplies as we receive funds for.
If you are interested in giving toward education but are unable to make a sustained commitment, this is a great opportunity to give a one-time contribution of $25, $50, $100, etc. Every little bit helps, and every penny you donate will go right toward purchasing school supplies for a family in need.
You may make a quick online donation here or send a check to Breaking Chains Honduras, P.O. Box 20454 Oklahoma City, OK 73156.
Thank you for your support in giving these kids a shot at an education! Below are a few faces who have already been helped with your generous donations, and we cannot wait to help more.
