We’re on a mission to build 1000 schools
Children walk miles and even hours everyday to go to school in Honduras. The journey to school is often times dangerous.
We believe every child deserves to receive an education.
Hondurans are already investing in Education.
We’re just there to lend a hand.
Our goal is to build 1000 schools.
Why 1000 Schools?
It has been estimated that 1000 villages in Honduras are in need of a school building.
We’re building these schools together.
We work with local leaders to build schools and classrooms. Currently, we work with public and community-run primary schools in Northern Honduras (also known as Proheco Schools). Our organization provides all construction supplies and professional labor.
In exchange, the parents in the community provide all the unskilled labor in the form of sweat equity. Each family also donates cinderblocks to the project. The families are involved in the whole decision-making process and construction to ensure maximum buy-in and ownership from the community.
The Honduran government sends the teachers to the facilities and pays their salaries through the Proheco Program. The local government also lends their heavy machinery for free at any of our sites. They also provide truckloads of sand to mix cement and send military security for all volunteer trips.
