HELP Honduras sponsors
Honduran Rotarians Mario & Maria with one of the children they 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 Kids

Students are attending school on-line for now.   When you sponsor a student in school, your dollars are used to provide school supplies and data packages for phones so students can receive and submit assignments.   AyO staff are connected to the students, providing help, encouragement and some tutoring to keep the kids in school. The cost to sponsor children in Tegucigalpa, Honduras are as follows.

Primary Students                                                             $190 per year

Secondary Students – Grades 7 – 12                        $315 per year

Vocational and University Students                         $370 per year

If you have sponsored student/s in the past, you will be sponsoring the same students in 2021 when possible.   COVID-19 has made it challenging for anyone to plan, so we won’t know if your students are returning until February.    If they don’t return, you will be assigned another student.  The need is greater than ever, and AyO has the capacity to handle many more students, if we can provide funding.  Our goal is to get kids in school and keep them there!
