Project: School Supplies
Submitted: June 2017
Solicitor: Local Church Open Arms
Location: Neighborhood of Gracias a Dios, Sta Rita, Yoro, Honduras
Project Justification: Why do you need the project?
The majority of the children in our community belong to low-income families. As a result of the economic burden this creates, some children do not begin the school year, or drop out early.
General Objective: What do you hope to achieve with the project?
For the children to not drop out due to lack of school supplies and to be able to finish their entire school year. We do not want to see these children make poor decisions due to their lack of education.
Beneficiaries: Who and how many will continually benefit from this project?
32 boys and 32 girls (64 children total).
The parents of the children will provide pants and skirts ($450).
The local church will provide crayons, paint, and art notebooks ($120).
Backpacks, notebooks, pens, pencils, shirts, shoes, and other items are requested from an outside donor.
