Challenge

Due to corruption, lack of education, and gang violence, families in extreme poverty work collecting recyclable materials in the garbage dumps. Children suffer from prenatal abuse, malnutrition, acute diseases, domestic violence, family disintegration, psychological, sexual, and physical abuse. All that abnormal situations combined cause persistent brain damage that creates learning and personality disorders. Grace works to serve these children integrally and stop the cycle of poverty.

Solution

Grace serves 107 families (200 students) that work in the garbage dumps of Honduras. By: Intellectual: A school in front of the entrance of the dump, scholarships programs for university and high school students, creation of microenterprises, adult education. Physical: Nutritional, medical, dental, and family planning programs. Emotional: Psychological support, prevention of gang insertion, recreational activities, spiritual support. Familiar: House construction, crisis relief, and settlement.

Long-Term Impact

1) New generations (babies taken care since nursery) will never attend to the dump, thus stopping child exploitation. 2) Overall better health conditions (no malnutrition, diseases that can be catch in the dump, death caused by accidents). 3) Gang recruitment prevention. 4) Job opportunities on site and educating 8 different communities to get better payed and safe jobs. 5) Educating since they are babies until they finish university, forming new professionals 6) Teaching emotional resilience.
