Some of the children in a two room schoolhouse
What H.O.P.E. has accomplished
Since November, 1999, H.O.P.E. has done approximately 15 trips working with over 55 volunteers (most of them repeaters). Volunteers work for a week to provide medical care, education on environment and health, and small construction projects. H.O.P.E. has served over 6500 children and adults during the past 15 years.
Here are a few of our past trip activities:
- building bathrooms with functioning toilets,
- providing materials and working on new roofs for the brick factory (which was the main source of income for the community),
- putting a roof on a single mother’s home.
- painted the school house and provided medical assistance and dental care to the villagers. All the children received preventative dental care, while some needed extractions, which was done in the two-room school house.
- shampooed approximately 45 children for nits.
A couple of the board members made a trip to Honduras this past October, 2014. We had another two day medical/dental brigade. We worked with over 6 doctors, dentists and assistants to see children and adults for their medical and dental needs. It was a great success! We were able to discuss with the leaders about more details for the library they plan to build once we have the funds.
Our Current Project – With Your Help
2011 -The board met with the primary school head master and the Parent-Teacher Association to the primary school to discuss assistance for their most immediate needs, besides the medical care and educational needs. The school’s long term dream was to have a library for the children.
We continue to work towards funding to build a room onto the two-room school house to use as a library/community building.
