Reopening Schools in Small Villages

Honduran schools are trying to reopen!

Students in Honduras have gone without formal schooling for two years now. For a system where it takes an average student over 9 years to finish first through sixth grades, this puts them at an even greater disadvantage. For our students who live in the mountain villages, this is devastating. 

Gladis Aguiriano, community development manager, has started working with the schools in the Department of Colón to hasten the process of reopening schools for children in our villages. 

Before schools can open, they must have the following in place:

  • Hand sanitizing stations in every classroom,
  • A bathroom and running water,
  • All children and teacher must wear masks, and
  • Social distancing will be required. 

If you have been to any of our smaller villages, you know how difficult a task this will be. 

We will do whatever we can to help the schools in the villages in Honduras we serve. Education is vital to the health of a community, and our children desperately need to get back to school. 

Make sure you have “liked” us on Facebook to keep up with the news of how things are going in each village. Gladis will do her best to explain the needs to see if we can help!
