Help transmit your knowledge and give maintenance and support to the places where vulnerable children study, so that they can access education. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singles
Couples
Groups
Too many Honduran kids go to school with an empty stomach, having eaten nothing at home. We believe that having something to eat is essential to get an education, as it allows children to focus and give their most at school and at their daily activities. That is why this project was born; an initiative to help these schoolchildren have at least one meal when going to school. We strive to achieve this through volunteering, as volunteers can provide essential help to the child development centers in Honduras, by teaching children or directly helping with their nutrition.
You can be part of this project and help our children, who are the most important pillar in our society, improve their skills and knowledge.

As a volunteer, you will be helping vulnerable children aged 6 to 15, many of which who have never been to school, by transmitting your knowledge and thus equipping them with necessary life skills. By helping children review or learn at these canteens, you will directly empower and impact the learning process of children and youth of the 3 communities we work with. One of the project's main objectives is encouraging children to keep on getting educated. 
In the canteen, volunteers may also help in activities such as cooking, lighting the stove, fetching firewood, delivering food for the children, and supporting in the maintenance of the center. Also, volunteers may collaborate by working in "the farm", a place where most of the food supply the dining rooms use is obtained; some vegetables we grow there are cucumbers, beets, onions, corn, coriander, and many others.
Some of the activities you will support in this area:

Typical day

In this volunteering program, we have two shifts: 

The morning shift which lasts from 7:00 until 12:00

The afternoon shift which lasts from 13:00 until 17:00

The community library is found at about five minutes from the place where you will be staying, while the schools' and centers' locations may vary. The farthest school is located 7 kilometers away in the mountains, at about 1 hour and a half time from the place you will be staying by a 4x4 vehicle. The rest of schools and centers are all located relatively near, 15 minutes time by motorcycle taxi (mototaxi) from your guest home.

Free-time activities

Honduras is a beautiful country in the heart of Central America with lots to offer to you: the bustling capital of Tegucigalpa, with historic buildings from the colonial era; many remains of the country's ancient Maya heritage, such as in majestic places like Copán Ruinas; remarkable landscapes such as in the Pico Bonito National Park, or sunny and sandy beaches and islands where you can go bathe and swim. 

Some of our recommendations of places to visit are:
-Cantarranas, a Honduran town filled with urban artistic expressions that are excellent ways to both understand modern Honduran culture and take very unique photos.
-Lake Yojoa, a lake surrounded with national parks and an excellent hiking opportunity. At this place, you cannot miss the astonishing Pulhapanzak Falls!
-Cerro el Picacho: An excellent hiking opportunity filled with scenic views, at its top there is a quite well-known cross called "el Cristo de Picacho".
