Our work in Honduras over the last 10 years has focused efforts to relief poverty, care for children, and meet the practical needs of residents through medical missions. We're currently focusing our efforts on raising sustainable funds to operate two vital projects:
The Hope Center
The Hope Center is more than an orphanage. Located in the village "Valle de Angeles" near the capital city of Tegucigalpa, and home to 18 abandoned or orphaned children, the Hope Center also serves as a medical clinic, feeding center and humanitarian relief and distribution center. John and Tarah Carette are the directors of the Hope Center, taking full responsibility for raising the children, as well as directing all of the activities of the Center. The Center must provide for all food, clothing, medical care, and education until each child reaches age 18. Your support will help meet all of these needs.
As the Hope Center Kids grew older, the need for schooling arose, and Honors Academy was founded. Honors Academy provides a faith and character based curriculum that is bi-lingual. At first, the school taught the Hope Kids, but with the needs and demands of others, this quickly expanded to become a multi-grade school serving the community, providing a unique education environment that includes: English and Spanish fluency, Christian character foundations, and an emphasis on service to others. In addition to local professionals, teachers are recruited from the United States to donate a year or two to work in the school, which has become a center of ministry, outreach and evangelism, while providing an excellent education.
