Sponsoring a school child is one of the most fulfilling ways you can contribute to the lives of Honduran children.
Your sponsorship will pay for basic school expenses such as uniforms, shoes, books, and school supplies, without which children cannot attend the otherwise free public schools in Honduras.
As a sponsor, you will receive a receipt for tax purposes, a certificate of sponsorship, and a photograph of the child you are sponsoring. Many sponsored children write occasional letters to their sponsors.
HELP Honduras collects funds from sponsors and provides school supplies. Student progress is monitored and tutors provided when needed. The pass rates of our sponsored students are 98%.
The costs to sponsor a Tegucigalpa Market Child are as follows.
- Primary School Student $190
- Secondary School Student $315
- Vocational Student $370
- University Student $370
If you have sponsored a student/s in the past, your funds will be used to sponsor the same student/s with the same honorees, when possible. However, due to the success of the Rotary sponsored Business & Skills Training for Women program, the parents of the child you have been sponsoring may now not require your support. Also, some of the previously supported students leave the AyO community every year. If your student was one of these, we will choose a new student for you to support.
