While a great deal of progress has been made, there is still a long road ahead. The cost of food continues to rise at a dramatic pace. There is a great deal of additional expense associated with running a full school from kindergarten through 11th grade, not to mention the many more mouths to feed each day. Finally, the economy in Honduras, especially on the mountain, is extremely depressed, making it challenging for workers to find jobs.
There is so much you can do to help the children of Honduras, from making a donation or sponsoring a student, to attending one of our upcoming fundraising events and even just spreading the word about Just Because We Care. It’s the caring and generous nature of our community here that makes all of this possible.
