Programs:

We are a networking and connecting point for volunteers on the island of Roatan, Honduras. We connect those who want to volunteer with those in need.
 
Our Forums develop issues to obtain actionable results. They inform of community needs and are a clearing house for volunteer needs. Nonprofits are represented, and made clear to volunteers who wish to work.
The Roatan Daycare Center is a bilingual Center for children of parents in need.
The Clinica Esperanza serves the poor with excellent health care.
PIER, Partners in Education work to satisfy the gaps in the public education system on the island.

Mission:
The Roatan Daycare Center operates under the Island Friends "umbrella." As Island Friends is a corporation, projects may operate under their 501c3 nonprofit status. Children in need receive bi-lingual education, healthy and safe care, and learn all-important social skills.
Island Friends is a coordinating point for volunteer efforts on the island of Roatan. It focuses on connecting those who want to help, with those in need. We make it easier for you to know where to put your interest in giving. Our forums provide information of current events, new ventures, create ideas and put them to action for help needed. Over one hundred fifty volunteers and most of the nonprofits on Roatan are represented. Our data base contains contact information for these nonprofits and volunteers.
Results:
We were able to buy a new stove...a big part of a daycare that cooks nourishing food for the children...every day! We have been chosen by Penn State Univ. for their visiting students to install solar panels. This will help our high electric bill and give us the opportunity for further outreach education of this use of alternate energy to the community.
