Summary

A unique partnership between Shoulder to Shoulder and Honduran public education offers accessible, quality, bilingual education. Inadequate resources mean most children only attend school through the sixth grade and still leave illiterate. This sustains endemic poverty and dependency. Children at the model, bilingual school excel academically, grow in confidence, and are inspired to become responsible, effective leaders. It is the empowerment of the greatest resource; the human mind and heart.

Challenge

In Honduras, public school buildings are collapsing, books and materials are non-existent, there are too few teachers, and those few are ill-prepared. In poverty-stricken, rural areas like ours, the situation is worse. Children leave school early. Without Skills and uneducated, they attempt to find work, but fail. Many young persons, in frustration, illegally migrate to the US. Private schools are accessible to a very tiny minority. The system sustains widespread poverty.

Solution

Shoulder to Shoulder partners with public education to provide accessible, quality curriculum and resources. While assisting all schools, the Good Shepherd Bilingual School in Camasca is the model for a primary education of excellence. We provide proven pedagogical resources, computer-based technology, and English-speaking volunteers to assist Honduran teachers. We partner with schools at all levels in the US to channel even greater resources and expertise. Our students are engaged and inspired.

Long-Term Impact

Present students will be empowered to access opportunity and secure professional, fulfilling careers. They will often be the first from their families to move beyond poverty's limitations. They will become leaders within their communities and their nation, addressing the root causes that keep Honduras poor. As the model extends and grows, communities will find opportunity to develop, economically and socially. Education will provide the standard for hope and inspiration.
