Become a Sponsor

Sponsoring a school child is one of the most fulfilling ways you can contribute to the lives of Honduran children.  You will be helping to improve their life chances! 

Tegucigalpa Market Children Program

In the 2022 school year, students in Tegucigalpa  will be going to school in a hybrid format of on-line and in-classroom learning.  Your donation will be used to provide uniforms, school supplies, and data packs for phones to access on-line classes.  Students who don’t have phones will be loaned one for the school year. AyO staff stay connected to the students and their families.  They monitor grades and provide help, encouragement and tutoring to keep the kids in school.  You can read more about this program here.
