My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for HELPING HONDURAS KIDS, Albany, NY, USA
I became a sponsor in 2010, and visited for the first time in 2011...and have been continuously amazed by this ministry ever since. Between the Children's Home and the Jungle School, there are 100 children who take great joy in getting to know you, giving you hugs, showing you the games and tricks and things that they have learned how to do...and craving every second of love and attention you are willing to share with them. As you learn their stories, you begin to understand why. They win a very special place in your heart quickly, as do the leaders of HHK. The directors, teachers, housemother's, and volunteers that work with this organization are totally focused on giving these children the childhood, the family structure, nutrition, education, and relationship with Christ that will give them the best chance possible tor a bright future. They are selfless and fully committed to the wellbeing of the kids. We have been nothing but impressed with every aspect of this ministry, and have continued to increase our support as we see the needs. Knowing the character of those running HHK, and experiencing the gratitude and love freely given by the kids makes supporting Helping Honduras Kids a joy! You can easily see the impact that you are making, and that is rewarding.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
...find a way to have more funds on a monthly basis because everything costs money they don't have. I would love to see more of these bright kids go to high school, and those that excel in high school go to college. I would take more families in the mountain monthly food subsidies so that they could eat more than rice and beans, and the kids could be kids rather than gathering firewood and water. I would build a church on the mountain where the kids live, and provide better transportation.
