School Supplies In Honduras - 2010

In Honduras the average person makes less then $3,000 a year and the unemployment rate is above 30%. Because of this and the fact that free and compulsory education stops at the sixth grade, only 1/3rd of the kids attend school beyond the sixth grade. In an effort to make education a reality in Armenia Bonito we asked our friends and supporters to send us school supplies for the school year that begins in February of 2010. We were able to distribute over 20,000 school supplies to over 400 kids, three schools, three churches and an orphanage.

Watch this 2 minute and 50 second video to see the blessing of these school supplies.
