Mission Statement

The Honduras Child Alliance is a diverse and collaborative, volunteer-based organization, collectively working to make life better for children in Honduras. United by a love of children and the desire to improve their opportunities, we coordinate volunteer-powered projects to support education, hygiene, families and communities. Volunteers of any race, nationality, religious or ethnic background are welcome to participate in the operation of our programs. Our projects reinforce basic academic skills while enhancing development of critical thinking and decision-making capabilities. By fostering positive creative expression, leadership talents and team building, we nourish confidence and self esteem. We include teaching English as a second language so our children can pursue education and employment opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable. Through partnerships with donors, sponsors and likeminded organizations, our projects are always provided at no cost to the children or their families.


Description

The Honduras Child Alliance is a small NGO based in the United States. All of our work takes place along the north (Caribbean) coast of Honduras. Most of the projects are based in El Porvenir, a small town near La Ceiba.

Our dedicated volunteers have come to Honduras from the U.S., Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Lithuania, Hungary, Israel and Australia. Not only will you be immersed in Honduran culture, but it is likely that you will become lifelong friends with volunteers from all over the world!

We welcome university groups and youth-groups and have hosted teams from Duke University, Virginia Tech, Drew University and Eckerd College.

By facilitating the interaction between culturally deprived children and our amazing, caring volunteers, we expand the children’s horizons while in turn, providing our volunteers and sponsors with life changing opportunities to give to children who deserve so much more than they have.

Our organization may be small, but with the energy of countless volunteers, we are enriching lives and providing opportunities for children who would otherwise have none. We welcome you to join us!!
