The corona time continues to occupy us, even though the acute risk is averted for our teams in Germany and Italy. All the more we look at our projects around the world and how we can better support the people in Haiti and Honduras so that they can get through this crisis better.


The Corona period in Honduras

After initially moderate increases, the number of cases of officially infected people is now skyrocketing in Honduras. A terrible condition for families who have lost their income and do not know how to make ends meet. Terrible for the children too, since many of the little ones have pre-existing conditions that make an infection with the coronavirus very dangerous.

Our on-site partner nph Honduras tries to help the families in need with food donations to at least avoid hunger phases. Face masks are now sewn in the “Talleres” workshops outside the capital, where children from 13 to 16 years of age usually learn the basics of a craft. The Pasos Pequenitos day care center unfortunately still has to remain closed, but the mothers are provided with a scholarship for basic nutrition.

We continue to support our projects at our best capacity, as they have now become important life savers for the people in need.



Already shortly before the Corona time, we adjusted our organizational infrastructure to the needs of our supporters - so you can join PEN PAPER PEACE from anywhere in the world, at any time of the day or night. At our first volunteer call we were an incredible 25 people! We are so happy about the diverse, talented and inspiring people who work with us for better education around the world.

If you want to join in, have a look at our website! There are tasks from one time to long-term commitments, from helping out at beverage sales to financial accounting.

Thank you for being a part of PEN PAPER PEACE!

Kind regards,

Nora, Lisa, Luca, Verena, Milena, Felix, Vivi, Verena, Denise, Peter, Alissa, Malin, Sonja, Janine, Giovanna and Jana at PEN PAPER PEACE e.V.

Thank you for your interest in supporting our project in Honduras!

We visited the Pasos Pequenitos daycare center for the first time in 2017. We were immediately enthusiastic about the project, as it gives young single mothers in the Honduran capital Tegucigalpa the opportunity to complete their education or study while their children are cared for in a loving environment. This enables us to work effectively on two levels: it helps children receive quality care and is a huge relief for the women, who know their children in good hands!

All of the mothers hope to significantly improve their lifestyle after finishing the education. Pasos Pequenitos would like to provide even more stability to the hard-working women – many of them work 6 days a week, 14 hours per day and have only Sundays off – and make the stipends available for them even after the children enter school. The mother stipends are a corner stone of the efficient and long-lasting help that significantly improves the lives of the single mothers and their children of Pasos Pequenitos.

Thank you for joining us in our journey promoting women‘s and children‘s rights!

All the best,

Milena and the PEN PAPER PEACE team

Welcome to our online fundraiser for SMALL STEPS HONDURAS!

SMALL STEPS (Pasos Pequenitos in Spanish) is a Day Care Center in Honduras, giving young single mothers the opportunity to complete their education. While their children are cared for in a safe and loving environment, they can finish the high school education, get an upper education or go to university.

The young single mothers of the day-care center "Pasos Pequenitos" come from very poor, partly dangerous neighborhoods. In order to give them the opportunity to care for themselves and their children in the future, there is an urgent need to support them. In the day-care center "Pasos Pequenitos", 20 children between the ages of one and six, are cared for everyday.

Donations make it possible for us to support the children and their mothers. With your help we can give them the tools to determine their own future. For all children and their mothers at SMALL STEPS, we thank you for your support!

All the best,

Milena and the whole PEN PAPER PEACE e.V. - team
