Eternal Family Project, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit Public Charity, provides a forever family to orphaned children in Honduras. By providing a safe, loving home, spiritual leadership, balanced nutrition, bilingual education and proper healthcare we are breaking the cycle of poverty that hundreds of thousands of children in Honduras are born into. EFP means so much more than just providing a meal or a place of momentary refuge. EFP provides a complete life support system for our girls.
With more than 80 percent of the population living below the poverty line in Honduras, many families struggle for food, clothing, and shelter. The circumstances many of Honduras’ children were born into haven’t given them a fair chance to be educated, cared for, and, more importantly, shown the love of Jesus. We are providing a loving family to girls who have been abused, abandoned and neglected. Each girl at EFP has their own struggles and pains of abandonment and loneliness. Knowing that only Jesus has the ability to heal them, we rest in the assurance that His love and compassion reaches far beyond what we can do in our own strength. Through prayer we ask for healing of deep wounds and the miraculous love of the Father to transform each life. Our mission is to pull them out of the despair they once lived in and provide the education and life tools necessary for each girl to live to their full potential as a Child of God. We are equipping them with the needed skills to walk away from hopelessness and into the open arms of Jesus. In this way, we break the cycle of poverty and abandonment. We are committed to providing long-term care and support to each girl, ensuring that they are able to receive secondary education and attend a university to pursue their dreams with the necessary education.
