Demasiados niños hondureños van a la escuela con el estómago vacío, sin haber comido nada en casa. Creemos que tener algo de comer es fundamental para conseguir una educación, ya que permite a los niños concentrarse y dar el máximo en la escuela y en sus actividades diarias. Por eso nació este proyecto; una iniciativa para ayudar a estos escolares a tener al menos una comida cuando vayan a la escuela. Nos esforzamos por lograr esto a través del voluntariado, ya que los voluntarios pueden brindar ayuda esencial a los centros de desarrollo infantil en Honduras, enseñando a los niños o ayudándolos directamente con su nutrición.

Puedes ser parte de este proyecto y ayudar a nuestros niños, que son el pilar más importante de nuestra sociedad, a mejorar sus habilidades y conocimientos.

  • Como voluntario, estarás ayudando a niños vulnerables de 6 a 15 años, muchos de los cuales nunca han ido a la escuela, transmitiendo tus conocimientos y dotándolos de las habilidades necesarias para la vida. Al ayudar a los niños a repasar o aprender en estos comedores, empoderará e impactará directamente en el proceso de aprendizaje de los niños y jóvenes de las 3 comunidades con las que trabajamos. Uno de los principales objetivos del proyecto es animar a los niños a seguir educándose. 

En el comedor, los voluntarios también pueden ayudar en actividades como cocinar, encender la estufa, traer leña, entregar comida para los niños y apoyar en el mantenimiento del centro. Además, los voluntarios pueden colaborar trabajando en "la finca", un lugar donde se obtiene la mayor parte del suministro de alimentos que utilizan los comedores; Algunas verduras que cultivamos allí son pepinos, remolachas, cebollas, maíz, cilantro y muchas otras.
Algunas de las actividades que apoyará en esta área:

Typical day

En este programa de voluntariado, tenemos dos turnos: 

  • El turno de la mañana que dura de 7:00 a 12:00
  • El turno de la tarde que dura de 13:00 a 17:00

La biblioteca comunitaria se encuentra a unos cinco minutos del lugar donde se hospedará, mientras que las ubicaciones de las escuelas y los centros pueden variar. La escuela más lejana se encuentra a 7 kilómetros en la montaña, aproximadamente a 1 hora y media del lugar donde se hospedará en un vehículo 4x4. El resto de escuelas y centros están todos relativamente cerca, a 15 minutos en mototaxi (mototaxi) desde su casa de huéspedes.

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".
