Review for Helping Honduras Kids, Woodland Park, CO, USA
I've had the privilege of being a board member with HHK for the past 5+ years now.
Helping Honduras Kids is dedicated to improving the lives of children in a very poor part of the country, giving them the opportunity to improve their lives through love, education and support.
Having spent some time at the Hogar de Amor (orphanage) I found the children to be generally happy, flourishing and living as a family. Many of the kids previously experienced abuse and or abandonment and their challenges are many. At the Hogar they are loved and nurtured.
The Jungle School is built on the side of a mountain along the Cangregal River. It is an amazing place to visit when school is in session. You'll find it filled with children who appreciate the 'opportunity' to go to school. They navigate its steep and sometimes slippery cement-filled-tire staircase like wild gazelles, rushing to and from classrooms. It's a sight to behold! The JS provides a free education to more than 200 children, who would otherwise not be educated, giving kids a clear path forward.
Honduras is a beautiful place to visit with picturesque mountains and crystal clear turquoise waters. If you can find or make the time for a visit, it's truly a remarkable experience.
With growing programs, new classrooms and more kids, HHK is severely underfunded and always in need of donors and sponsors for the children. If you'd like to help, learn more or visit the Hogar or Jungle School go to: HelpingHondurasKids.org
