This has been a most successful year...

Our plan was simple… to be the light that illuminates a better journey for the countless forgotten people of Honduras – to protect, inspire, nurture, educate, and challenge them along the road to a sustainable future. As a special thanks again and ten thousand times again to all our donors for making another extraordinary year for so many children! There is no child or teen in our programs who isn’t profoundly grateful for your support!
