So, since now, all their users can make their most special gift: they will provide of a school material kit to one kid for the course, which will help them to develop their classes and training activities.  With just 1€ at the end of the  purchase, users hill have the opportunity to contribute to facilitate the access to free and quality education for the students in Honduras, the second poorest country in Latin America, where 1,3 million people are illiterate (15% of the population) and 2 million people live on less than 1,5€ a day. Education is the only means to address poverty effectively.

Thanks to their solidarity collaboration, 100 school kits equipped with a notebook, a pencil and a sharpener, will be distributed among students of ACOES Schools, the only free educational infrastructure in Nueva Capital, the largest marginal zone throughout Tegucigalpa (Honduras).

If you want to follow the project, you can do it through this LINK.

Without any doubt, this will be the greatest gift they have ever done.

The Honduran Moskitia

Wampusirpi is a small village located in the middle of the Honduran Moskitia. The inhabitants of this area are mostly Miskito and the population is as little as 1,500. With neighbouring villages around the Wampusirpi the population totals 6,000.

The Miskito inhabitants have faced decades of extreme conflict and sadly there are still problems that the Miskito face. The majority of young and adult Miskito are illiterate. This is due to there not being schools in the small villages and so students need to travel to surrounding villages to attend school. The students who are fortunate to attend school, often have to leave because of the high cost of education to join their parents in low paid work.

For the Miskito Indians the typical jobs are manual work, farming and cultivation, however there is a lack of work, which when found is poorly paid and of temporary duration. Many children assist their families within the household and manual work.

A more substantial future is wanted for the young people of Moskitia, where they will be able to gain the education that they deserve thus allowing them to develop a career in their home town.
