We believe thateducation, faith and loveare what children need to break the cycle of poverty. A child who can read, write and who has a foundation in Christ has hope and a real chance to succeed. Our goal is to provide Honduran children an education so that they may become future leaders in their communities.

Education is the Passport Out of Poverty

The Need

Education in Honduras is state-subsidized for the first six years, yet many children are unable to attend school because their families cannot afford to buy the necessary school supplies and uniforms or pay the fees and transportation costs.

Our Goal

A child who can read, write and who has a foundation in Christ has hope and a real chance to succeed. Our goal is to provide Honduran children an education so that they may become future leaders in their communities.

Your Purpose

As a sponsor, your financial support provides the necessary educational supplies that enable your sponsored student’s school attendance. You provide encouragement to your sponsored student through letters, photos and prayer.

Their Gift to You

In return, you receive a photo, report card, and handwritten letter, as well as the satisfaction of making a real and measurable difference in a child’s life.

Our Expectations

A sponsored student is required to maintain a yearly GPA of 80% or above to remain in the program. Their grades indicate their commitment to working and learning. An under-performing student can, however, return when his or her grades improve.

Christ's Love

We emphasize and encourage their continued knowledge of Jesus and His teachings. We remind them that He will be their best friend throughout their lives and the importance of praying for His help and guidance.

Education empowers children and develops them as better citizens.

Doris Fredricksen

Founder and Director of Development, Project Honduran Child

After doing mission work for 5 years in Honduras and knowing children cannot attend school without uniforms and supplies, Doris began with a few friends sponsoring about 10 children in 2010. The sponsorships have grown to 140 children, grades K-12, covering 3 Mountain areas. As our students learn, grow and move into adulthood, we are confident that Project Honduran Child will make an impact in their lives as well and their family life and communities.

Jennifer Cassell

Chief Administrative Officer, Project Honduran Child

Shortly after Doris began her mission work in Honduras, Jennifer was able to see the joy and purpose that her mother’s work was bringing into her life. As a result, Jennifer began joining Doris on annual mission trips and soon joined in on Project Honduran Child. Jennifer owns and manages her own marketing communications and graphic design company in Bethesda, Maryland and has been blessed with the opportunity to bring her business acumen, marketing, organizational and technical skills to the program.
