When thinking about orphans, we often think about young children without a family living in institutions. But, what happens once they get older? What happens to these children when they turn 18? Does the orphanage prepare them for the world outside? Do they have a place to stay? An education? A job? A community to spend Christmas with ?
The answer to all those questions for the orphans we support in Honduras is: no.
Today, we’re delighted to share with you our newest project for 2018, The Alexander House, a Heart4Honduras Home. This is a new opportunity for H4H to help orphaned boys turning 18 transition from orphanage to independence. Our goal is to help guide these boys through creating a a stable and supportive homeand to prepare them to live successfully on their own. And most importantly, it will keep them off the streets and end the cycle of poverty for them and their future families.
The home will be located in the city of San Pedro Sula. The boys will learn to support themselves and be part of a cooperative household. Our team has researched housing options and expenses and desperately need your help to make this a reality. We have set a goal of $10,000 to get the house up and running for 6 months. We will need one-time donors as well as monthly sponsors to achieve our goal.
We are asking for a community to come together in support of these boys. We are so thankful for your donations and prayers throughout this process. We love these boys. We’ve seen them grow and prosper, and we believe they can continue to do so through adulthood.
