In a country where more than half a million people are illiterate, education is vital for a child to escape poverty. However, 46 percent of children in Honduras never finish primary school largely due to the fact that they are not equipped to succeed.
This Christmas you have the opportunity to change that for one child with a Christmas Backpack?
Why a Backpack?
Unlike schools in the US, the Honduran school year begins in February. For each child to begin school they need a uniform and basic school supplies, but that is often impossible when families are struggling just to feed their children.
When you buy a Christmas backpack for only $35, a child receives a uniform, shoes, school supplies, and the opportunity to hear the gospel.
This simple gift impacts beyond just one child. It opens the door for us to share the gospel with their parents, extended family, and friends.
