AN OPTION TO ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSING
In today’s world, there are millions of forgotten children needing care and protection. They are the poorest, the most vulnerable, the exploited and the abused. In Honduras the struggle for human survival is often catastrophic leaving thousands of innocent children in unthinkable conditions of squalor and violence.
In Honduras, many desperate and disadvantaged youth migrate to cities in search of a better future. There, unemployment, hunger, disease, drugs, and gangs await them. More often than not, misery and violence consume them and their futures seem hopeless. Desperate for an escape, many travel to the Mexican -US border. It is a horrifically dangerous journey and even though the odds are against them arriving, when one is lacking all hope, the perilous journey is worth the gamble.
Hope For Honduran Children works to provide youth with another option. We educate and mentor underserved youth towards a successful and sustainable future. The youth in our programs are studying to become confident and skilled leaders within the Honduran society. We need your help in order to provide safe housing and education for more of these forgotten children. Help us "teach them to fish".
