Mission Statement

El Hogar provides a quality education and a safe and nurturing home to children living in impoverished conditions in Honduras. Our goal is to break the cycle of poverty so that our students can fulfill their potential as productive and independent Honduran citizens.

Description

El Hogar started in 1979 with five young boys living on the streets of Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Five members of the local Episcopal Church wanted to do something about child homelessness in the capital city. They rented a house, took in those five boys and nurtured and cared for them. With that, El Hogar de Amor y Esperanza was born.

We provide the children with a home, a nurturing environment, an education and a marketable trade. Since 1979, nearly 1,000 students have graduated from El Hogar!
