Every year,as part of our Christmas Backpack Program, POI has the opportunity to provide hundreds of children with backpacks filled with uniforms, shoes, and school supplies.
These school supplies pave the way for children to break the chain of poverty. With a good education, a child has opportunities to go to college and find jobs. Their joy at something as practical as school supplies and clothes is incredible.
Last year over 300 backpacks were given out to children all throughout Tegucigalpa, Honduras. We want you to join with us this year!
Seven-year-old Silas Abimelec Ponce goes to school in a neighborhood called Villa Nueva.
Silas’s mother was single and struggling financially; she couldn’t afford any of the school supplies required for Silas or his sisters. She planned on waiting a year to put Silas back in school.
POI has the incredible opportunity to meet so many pertinent needs, but it wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of so many. We thank you for coming along side us and mobilizing the gospel by meeting physical needs of children and families in Honduras. We are excited to see how the Lord works through our Backpack Giveaway this year.
