Castlegar Twin Rivers Elementary School Grade 4/5 Class

This class has been raising funds for Market Children in Tegucigalpa for over 10 years.  Their teacher, Curt Kutschera, uses the exercise to raise kids awareness about the importance of education, Central America and charitable giving.

In 2018 the class raised over $1,000!  

 

Ron & Elaine Ross, founders of  H.E.L.P. Honduras, are seen here with the 2016 class.

H.E.L.P. Honduras 2017 Inspection Tour

Each year in January, a team of HELP Honduras members travel to Honduras to meet with our partners at  Alternativas y Oportunidades (AyO) and the Rotary Clubs of Tegucigalpa and Santa Barbara.    We review the activities of the previous year and make plans for the next.

We spend three or four days photographing the over 400 children that  our sponsors support in school through HELP Honduras .  We get thousands of hugs, smiles and thank-you’s from the kids and their families.

The HELP Honduras Directors are a dedicated bunch.  They donate  their time and travel at their own expense to do the annual inspection tour.

Details of the 2017 inspection tour are below.
