How your donation keeps the classrooms open . . . 

People often want to donate to a tangible 'thing'. Maybe a bag of groceries for struggling families, or perhaps a computer for the classroom. Our supporters are so generous and we appreciate everyone so much, but here's the thing, Honduras Child Alliance can only make it through 2021 if we address our general operational expenses in a sustainable way.

    It's a simple equation. With the likelihood of very few incoming volunteers, Honduras Child Alliance will be able to stay open for 2021 if we can pay the electric bills, provide internet access, maintain the classrooms, replenish educational materials, and pay our (Honduran) in-country team to keep classes running and doors open. So, while there may not be a lot of glamour to supporting a monthly internet bill, fixing the lock on the gate, or making sure that the hourly stipends for our ayudantes and facilitadores are paid on time, that is the most important place where we need your help.

How your donation provides Healthy Snacks and nutritional support . . . 

In addition to providing a daily protein-filled Healthy Snack to each child who attends the PEP+ program, due to the impact of the pandemic and several hurricanes, Honduras Child Alliance has added regular food distributions for 300+ families in need. These are difficult times for everyone, but for hungry families in El Porvenir, there is no safety net.

    Workplaces and schools remain closed. Money is scarce and vulnerable children are hungry. As much of the community is already struggling with malnutrition and food insecurity, it made a tough situation worse. COVID-19 has had a significant impact in El Porvenir in this regard but, starting in August 2020, and at the cost of just $21 USD per bag, HCA has been able to distribute 300+ grocery bags of food staples each month filled with essentials like rice, beans, flour and oil. We are able to source supplies locally, thereby also boosting the local economy. We have a plan to feed our kids and to help their families get through this crisis, but ongoing help is needed right away to ensure that families receive basic food supplies during this economic emergency.

How your donation provides access to technology . . . 

(Pre-pandemic photo.) Due to the pandemic, our students need support in completing their schoolwork remotely. Computer literacy is essential for further education and employment, but right now, keeping our community-classrooms open for additional hours each day so that students can do assignments is especially urgent. Public school children in Honduras attend from February through November each year. However, as in many parts of the world, Honduras closed schools and businesses in mid-March 2020 in efforts to control the spread of COVID-19.

    Honduras Child Alliance also closed at that time, and while HCA was given permission to reopen with small groups on August 31st, the public schools remain closed. As the new school year has begun, classes will be virtual until at least the end of June as the Honduran government does not have resources to schedule students into smaller groups or maintain safety protocols. 
    Younger children are supposed to receive paper packets of their assignments while older ones (middle school and high school) are supposed to be able to interact with their assignments online. Unfortunately, most of this is not really possible. Most families in El Porvenir live in poverty and do not have access to computers and the internet. Many parents are functionally illiterate and cannot help their children with schoolwork. For the younger students, receiving work-packets is intermittent due to the lack of paper, ink, and the ability to print in volume. Combine this with living situations that make completing assignments unlikely, most students are not currently interacting with their schoolwork.

How your donation helps our interns gain work experience and stay in school . . . 

Our Honduran managers and interns have taken the lead to maintain programs during the pandemic. This program is a win-win-win! Young adults from El Porvenir gain professional development and earn a stipend to help pay for their further education by working at and managing the Honduras Child Alliance programs. Blended teams of volunteers from around the world, alongside our team of Honduran interns, work in a unified effort and are great role models for the kids.

    This program brings value to each and every participant but while volunteer labor is free, the interns need to be paid.

    With all of the controversy surrounding immigration, we believe that the one thing that everyone can hopefully agree on is that when people have viable options within their own country, then they are not forced to flee. Our 'ayudante' and 'faciltadore' program is meant to help Honduran young people develop the skills to access opportunities within Honduras so that they can feel confident that they have a future in their own country. It's also making the HCA programs more sustainable since the 'ayudantes' and 'facilitadores' can become ongoing trained staff.
