Tierre de Padre school receives solar from IRC

Living in the dark all the time is unimaginable for most of us. Today IRC provided Tierre de Padre with Solar lighting after painting the school last week. This school was built by Torch Mission teams last year. The picture of the boy reading is the first Lenca to read at night in the village. The lighting will also provide them for a place to meet at night and recharge for school equipment.

School Supplies and Uniforms for 2017

Through The Honduras Project, IRC provides nearly 400 students with school supplies and uniforms on an annual basis.  For those who are familiar with Honduras, children cannot attend school without these items, and families in extreme poverty often cannot afford them.  In January and February 2017, The Honduras Project once again came through for these children.  Thanks to First United Methodist Church in Tupelo, Mississippi, we have fulfilled commitments to provide school supplies and uniforms to the entire student body at two schools in the communities of Tierras del Padre and Altos de Diamante.  The cost for each student averages $35-$40.  Our aim is to prevent this amount from keeping a child in school for the entire year.  If you are interested in supporting this worthy project, use our “Donate” button and indicate in the memo “School Supplies.”  As with all of our donations, 100% goes to the project.  We do not use donations for any administrative costs.
