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.
