Our Programmes in Honduras

After 18 months of construction, our first students officially started school on 31 January 2017. On 17 January 2020, a new school building was inaugurated to increase student capacity. Our Trustee, John Graham, attended the inauguration ceremony and got to visit some of the remote and impoverished regions where our students come from. Read his blog on his experiences of this memorable visit.

The workshop building houses our vocational training facilities (computer science, electronics, electricity) as well as the library and chemistry lab.

The current number of enrolled boys is 948.
