Solicitor: Apostolic Ministry of Casa Paterna in Borbotón
Location: Borbotón, Santa Cruz de Yojoa, Cortes, Honduras
Project justification: The current chairs in the Church in Borbotón are old and in some cases broken due to wear and tear. The chairs in disrepair pose a risk of collapsing when people sit down in them. The pastor and leaders want to ensure the safety of persons who are part of the worshipping congregation and visitors to the facility. They also wish to improve the visual esthetic of the worship space. This initiative seeks to provide 150 new plastic chairs for the church.
Beneficiaries: The congregation and all who utilize the space for meetings and events.
Local Church: funds for chairs (20% of required resources)
Association of Casa Paterna: funds for chairs (13% of required resources)
Outside Collaborator: funds for chairs (67% of required resources)
Total Amount Requested from Outside Donor: $1,102.04
Accountability Statement: The Heart to Honduras Honduran administrative office (CPH) works diligently to avoid paying the 15% Honduran sales tax on materials through a tedious exemption process. The current Honduran taxation system cannot guarantee this exemption prior to any purchase, and as a result this amount is included in the solicited amount listed with collaborative initiatives. If CPH does succeed in procuring an exemption or extra funds remain for any other reason following the execution of an initiative, surplus funds will be applied via internal policy to support future collaborative community initiatives, the administrative work of CPH, and the operational expenses of the Community Development Department.
