Children of Hondruas Trust is a charity which was started in 1973 and over those 40 years we have sent out almost 100 containers worth of supplies.
These supplies are second hand clothes, shoes, school uniforms, food, medicines, computers, educational supplies, tables, chairs and other things too numerous to list.
This has improved the nutrition and access to education for thousands of children.
More about our history ...
Honduras is an extremely poor developting country, with little paid work and no state help. This means that if you can't earn some money, you can't eat and neither can your children.
Education is the best way to help the future of a country, but it is difficult to learn if you can't attend school or are too hungry to learn.
More about Honduras ...
Over this time, we have grown a loyal group of supporter due to our approach of having no paid staff and minimal expenses. It is important to us that when people give, they know that nearly all of what they donate goes towards what they are donating to.
Less that 2% of what we raise goes towards optional costs (In 2014, this was the cost of catering for the volunteers on loading day and the cost of printing the newsletters (Which are done at cost.) ).
This is a charity which is run out of a living room, not because it is too small, but because it keeps costs down.
Most of what we send is donated and when we do have to buy things, where possible, it is bought whilst on sale. This includes school uniforms, pasta and tinned food.
