In today’s world, millions of children who need care and protection are forgotten. These children are the poorest, the most vulnerable, the exploited and the abused. In Honduras 80% of the population lives in conditions of extreme poverty and the greater majority are children. There is an overwhelming lack of healthcare, government assist programs, potable water, paved roads and bridges. The chance for education is minimal and unemployment is the norm.

Hope for Honduran Children is making a difference

The primary focus of our foundation is to create opportunities and sustainability for countless youth of Honduras. We help support five impoverished and isolated communities with medical and educational supplies as well as water and food for the communities. We are working to find sponsors for each of our youth, to enhance our growing scholarship fund, and to create new micro enterprises. We are planting the seeds for responsible leadership in a more productive society. We encourage you to join us in the daily challenge of providing opportunities for a better tomorrow for the poorest of the poor in neighboring Honduras.

The Noreen Macbean Sewing Center

Noreen Macbean had an enormous passion for life, children, and adventure. This vibrant 37 year old woman from Utah was tragically killed while bicycling with a club of 100 cyclists. Always focused on helping others, she was an uplifting friend to many. Noreen's husband, Allen, and other family members are working with the Hope for Honduran Children Foundation, to pay tribute to this beautiful woman in a very meaningful way. The Sewing Center has proven to be enormously successful and is providing children with the knowledge and skills that will enable them to support themselves and improve the lives of their families and villages. The residents of Casa Noble spend several hours each day learning and working in this center – as a result, they have begun their own very successful micro enterprise making and selling cosmetic bags.

 

FEED A VILLAGE

Naguara Village CooksIn today’s world, there are millions of forgotten children who have never experienced the joy or even the possibility of “hope”. Our foundation was established to help improve the lives of these children. Our goal is to instill the desire and provide the tools for them to become self-sufficient, caring, and responsible adults. H4HC works directly with rural elementary schools in five remote Honduran villages providing much needed food, educational support, high school scholarships, clothing, and medical aid.

SISTER SCHOOL PROGRAM

The philanthropic efforts of H4HC have had a profound impact on all of our volunteers. In addition to providing for the vulnerable youth of Honduras, we are equally dedicated to inspiring a spirit of philanthropy in the students of North America. With our Feed-a-Village & Sister School Program our goal is to provide North American students with a better understanding of the world in which we live, providing them a life changing experience in the world of compassion, generosity and personal action. Working in partnership with H4HC, American youth learn the true meaning of social responsibility and become keenly aware aware how a small simple act of giving makes an enormous difference. What starts with a simple drive becomes a lesson about the true meaning of altruism. When American students see photos of bright smiles on the faces of children who receive their gifts, their eyes open to an entirely new world they've never seen before. They begin to understand the important role they can play in making life better for others. They learn that “To the world you might be one person, but to one person, you just might be the world.”
