Children are the future of every nation.  Every bit of energy and money given for children’s future is an investment in the future of a nation.

Why education projects?

Others have described the depth of the education problem in the following ways:
“Given that 61% of the Honduran population is below the age of 25, the need for access to quality education leading to productive employment is critical for the country’s development. At present, 86% of Hondurans complete sixth grade, but fewer than 45% complete the ninth grade and fewer than 25% complete high school. Only six percent continue to complete a university education. Despite an increasing elementary school completion rate, Honduras has the lowest secondary school enrollment rate in Latin America…Many families are unable to afford the costs of post-elementary education, with about 42% of the heads of families subsisting on $2.00 per day.”  (The United States Agency for International Development)
“The Honduran constitution states that a free primary education is obligatory for every child between the ages of seven and fourteen. The reality of the Honduran educational system is much more grim. Because of a lack of schools, understaffed schools, the high cost of materials needed for these schools, and the poor quality of public education, a good education is still largely the privilege of the few who can afford to send their children to private institutions….Figures cited by the Ministry of Education suggest that Honduras suffers from widespread illiteracy (more than 40 percent of the total population and more than 80 percent in rural areas). A significant percentage of children do not receive formal education.”
