This season in Grace has been a great challenge and an opportunity to blindly walk in faith, knowing God will come through... and guess what, HE HAS!!!! We are almost finishing the playground and perimeter wall project thanks to our German friends, food is not an issue at all (it was, for seven long years....) now with national and International partners. Other community friends are supporting two of our teachers, the kids are learning and we are getting ready to celebrate Children´s Day.
All of this and more, just by trusting God and people like YOU, who believe that kids should be in school and not working in the trash dump; for all of our donors, THANK YOU for believing that we ALL should be the voice of those who are not heard.
Thanks to special friends we began the 2023 school year with a different approach, by providing an intentional nutritional plan to our children, with all the vitamins needed for them to better their school performance. Plus school supplies, artistic and STEM activities for all of our students.
A PLAYGROUND THAT CHANGES LIVES
For nine years we have prayed for a playground for our children and other kids who go to the dump; this is now a reality!!! A place where kids can be kids. There is no place like this one in the community, so all of our children are more than happy to play 24/7.
We look forward to what God has in store for us and thank every friend and partner that has helped us. We are grateful that each one of you has trusted us and our vision.
This 2022 came with lots of challenges, personal and Non-Profit related, but in each one of the struggles, no matter if it was little or huge, my God was there holding my anxious heart whispering "I got this, chill". This is because of people like you who donate, who believe that there shouldn't be children working in the trash dump; thanks to all of our donors who make dreams come true for our students...
1.) Our ninth graders finished with high scores in all their classes and the national hymn test. Tenth grade is just right across the block and the university is one step closer!!!!
2.) Our preschoolers also celebrated graduating and going to first grade this Feb. 2023. 25 boys and girls passed with great grades this year.
3.) All of our 200 students received a gift, toys, clothes, and shoes for Christmas. It was a great and fun day for everyone. They all had a blast!
4.) We are welcoming new students: We have a big waiting list of new children who want to study here, they have come to school on several occasions to eat and just talk. We are thrilled to serve these children. Our goal for this 2023 school year is to receive 250 students from kindergarten through tenth grade and be able to provide whatever they need for a proper school year.
5.) Our girl Jennifer did it again! She scored the necessary points on her admission test to study for a Bachelor's in Pedagogy at the best university in Honduras. If you want to support Jennifer in her 4-year journey consider donating through GlobalGiving.
Thanks to amazing friends, for the past months we have been able to provide our families with food, education, healthcare, psychological support, shoes and clothes, and more...
Thanks to our friends in Germany we are almost finished building a new classroom.
Even though we only have 4 teachers, classes have been nonstop, we are beginning to prepare for two different graduations this year, as kindergarten and ninth-grade students have different celebrations.
Thanks to friends like Ruth we are able to build two different houses, for our families.
We keep on providing fashionable and comfortable shoes for everyone.
Thanks to friends like Jimena, we are still providing food and education for our 200 students, as well as personalized psychological and psychiatric help to women and children that need it.
Thanks to community friends we receive a donation of 10 bicycles, to children who live far away from school.
In July we celebrated a national holiday called "Indian Lempira Day", in which several of our girls' students were dressed in typical Honduran clothing, and we all ate delicious Honduran food.
Time flies when education is winning, love spreads through all the world when we are truly transforming lives, and we feel so honored to be able to witness how communities, families, and people are changing for good, but this is ONLY POSSIBLE with your support!
So, thank you, thank you, thank you, it's because of sponsors, who donate, trust and believe in our mission. You guys made this possible, THANK YOU!!!!!!!
