We Give Back

Helping Honduras Kids (HHK) is a non-profit Christian organization that manages a Children's Home (orphanage), caring for 23+ children who have been abandoned, abused and/or neglected. We also built and operate a free private school (Jungle School) located in the impoverished mountain area outside of La
Ceiba. Over 240 students attend grades K-9th. Children receive a quality education, daily devotional, and a nutritious lunch. In addition, we provide much needed food to children and families in nearby Campesinos (peasant villages). As we receive no government funding we are in great need of sponsors who will help
support a child in our Children's Home, Jungle School, High School, or one of the remote Campesinos. HHK is a 501c3 non-profit organization headquartered in the USA with operations in Honduras. As such your donations may be tax deductible.

Will you consider helping?

Helping Honduras Kids is a diverse group of volunteers and sponsors united by a love of children and the desire to help them move from abject poverty to a satisfying and decent life. We're an ecumenical bunch, from all walks of life, striving to provide a loving and healthy environment to children in the La Ceiba area of the north coast of Honduras. Please consider donating.
