School Supplies In Armenia Bonito

In Honduras only 1/3 of kids go to school beyond the 6th grade. The primary reason for this is that free public education does not exist beyond the 6th grade. Many families cannot afford to send their kids to school. In an effort to provide education as an affordable option for some families we gathered together school supplies for over 300 kids.

The school year starts in February so we just distributed those supplies to the kids of Armenia Bonito. Take a look at this 2 minute and 45 second video to see how it went.
