Starting in 1996, our founder Rodger Harrison delivered school supplies on horseback to remote mountain classrooms all around Copán Ruinas, Honduras. We’ve upgraded to a Kawasaki Mule since then, but we’re still providing about 25 schools with basic supplies, and funding building improvements and expansions.
65% of Hondurans live in poverty. Of that, 42% are in extreme poverty. In a region where many families can’t afford to send their children to school, our program has enabled many children to attend at least at the elementary level. And as an unexpected bonus, we’re now seeing some of our former students return to the mountains as teachers!
Come join us—we welcome volunteers from all ages and backgrounds to provide school supplies to our classrooms. Click here to learn more!
