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

Your donation will be used to provide uniforms, school supplies, and data packs for phones to access on-line classes.   AyO staff stay connected to the students and their families.  They monitor grades and provide encouragement and tutoring to keep students in school.  You can read more about this program here.
