It’s hard to believe that the New Year is almost here! In Gracias, Lempira, our students have been enjoying some much-needed time off from homework and exams.

Did you know?

  • We now have five students in school, ranging from pre-kindergarten to vocational high school. We started with one sixth grader back in 2011, and now that same student, Karla, is preparing to graduate in the fall of 2020.
  • We don’t just pay for scholarships. OFH is proud to be more than just a sponsorship organization. We’ve always focused on personal relationships with students, individualized attention, long-term commitment and holistic development. It’s far more challenging than simply writing a tuition check every year, but we believe it’s worth it.
  • OFH is completely funded by individual donors—friends and family who believe in these students and in the transformational power of education.
  • Over 80% of our budget goes straight to Honduras. We exist to support students in Honduras. That’s why we volunteer our time from the U.S. to help run this organization, and we send the majority of all funds raised directly to Gracias where it pays for student needs.

Also, did you know that it costs about $15,000 per year to support all five of our students?

Your donations make all of this possible. We’d love for you to thoughtfully consider giving to One Family Honduras this year. To give online or via check, click here.

And if you have experience in education, child development, or a related field and would like to volunteer your expertise, please let us know. Our family is always growing.

Gracias!
