Donations fund school meals and electricity

The Honduran government provides its public schools with rice, beans, maiz, and oil so that the primary school students can have a hot, filling meal…though not this year. Normally the government food can expect to arrive sometime in February, but this year we still have yet to receive it. However, thanks to the generous support for this project through donations and fundraising the students at San Rafael and Barbasco have continued to receive the daily school lunch that they should.

Every week for the past two months staff members have purchased 55 pounds of rice, 55 pounds of beans, and 30 pounds of maiz to feed the 140 students that attend both schools. We will continue to buy these amounts of food until the government food arrives

Donations also helped us to fund a consistent electricity connection at the school. As we fund Secondary education classes at the school in the early evenings light can be an issue, now the secondary students will be able to see better during their early evening classes and the school can be lit on cloud covered days!
