We are a 501 c 3 non-profit organization focused on helping youth achieve greater education outcomes. Our focus is on supporting education initiatives that help youth improve their reading and math skills while building self confidence and strengthening their emotional and spiritual well being. An important part of our work is focused on helping US born children impacted by deportation of one or both parents. Current activities are focused in Fairfax, Virginia and Gulfport, Mississippi but these efforts will expand as more Honduran families request help for their children living in the US. We are also supporting children in Honduras that need assistance in completing their education (grades 1 - 12). Finally, we are providing text book scholarships to Dreamers (undocumented persons brought to the US at an early age).
By partnering with us through your tax deductible donations, you can help children improve their education outcomes. Our first goal is to help a child find a church home with a strong youth ministry. We then seek specific ways to promote better education outcomes via tutoring, access to educational material, mentoring and planning for higher education. Our ultimate goal is to support a family's efforts to have their child enter technical or college degree programs.
An English and Spanish language website - Unidos Contigo - allows Honduran families to request support for their children. We follow up these requests with an assessment of the child's needs and a plan to help that child achieve improved education outcomes. Your tax deductible donation can make a difference in a child's life.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. Our nonprofit couldn't accomplish critical education goals without the help of supporters like you.
As we move forward, the most important asset we have is the network of partners that are willing to help children address issues (physical, emotional and spiritual) that negatively impact education outcomes. Your support can mean the difference in the direction a child takes. Your help can contribute to the strengthening of communities and our country, one child at a time. Together we can make a difference.
Thank you for your support!
Improving education helps prevent out migration. Social and economic development is the most effective way to stop the caravans!
