FEED A VILLAGE
Give a little, get a lot

Help bring food, clean water & education to remote mountain villages

In today’s world, there are millions of forgotten children who have never experienced the possibility or joy of “hope”. Our foundation was established to help improve the lives of children ravaged by conditions of extreme poverty. Our goal is to instill the desire and provide the necessary tools for them to become self-sufficient, caring, and responsible adults. We work directly with the rural elementary schools in these remote Honduran villages.

"Never doubt that a small group of concerned citizens can change the world. They are the only people who ever have.” - Margaret Mead

Children and families living tucked away in remote villages are testimony that you need very little to make a happy life. They are impoverished, isolated and for the most part, they are forgotten. The average Honduran family has eight children. Education is mandatory until grade six but each student is required to have a $25 uniform, making education impossible for most families. Children often expect their only meal of the day to be served at school. However, in remote villages the cupboards are often empty. Our mission is to inspire people and provide them the tools to become self-sufficient responsible adults. H4HC is a small 501c3 foundation with no “middle men” and no marketing budgets. We are volunteers working to ensure all funding is allocated, delivered and monitored. We work to instill hope, dreams, independence, and leadership. We believe in helping provide the essentials of food, water, and education. We encourage and inspire people to help themselves while we work for sustainable long-term success.

 

VISIT OUR FIVE VILLAGES

Flor Azul Village

Flor Azul VillageLocated only 30 minutes from the Flor Azul Boys Farm, and 2 hours from Tegucigalpa, this remote village is home to approximately 260 people. It began with ten straw huts in 1920 but in 1933 due to the ravages of yellow fever the villagers moved to higher more remote ground in order to avoid the disease and live in fresher air. In Flor Azul village life is simple but not easy. It is extremely difficult to drive to the village necessitating a journey through sugar cane fields and up a twisted rocky dirt road. There is no electricity and no water. Due to its mountainside location, extreme droughts followed by horrendous floods, the growing of crops is all but impossible. Only a handful of the men have employment and that is only temporary during the cane-picking season. But look closely and you will find a tight knit, happy and grateful community. When the sun sets at six o’clock families gather, light a candle, eat tortillas, sing songs and share stories. Indeed they would like to have available water rather than the need to hike for an hour each way to its source. Flor Azul Village But there greatest challenge is funding the education of their children. They believe the future of the village rests on the education of their children. The small village grade school is in great need of resources. Throughout Honduras most children barely complete grade six. In this village ten of the older children travel enormous distances each day to attend high school. Their goal is to one day attend college. Their sacrifice is enormous. For example, 18 year old Hirley dreams of attending medical school. Each day she travels four hours by donkey and another 30 minutes by bus to attend high school in Yuscaran. Your contribution to the forgotten village of Flor Azul will make a life changing difference.

Naguara Village
Naguara Village Cooks It is always a challenge to reach this small village and virtually impossible during the rainy season.However, crossing the rivers and trekking up the twisted mountain road is always worth every bit of the effort.When we first arrived in Naguara in 2010, the children had not even heard of the USA….today they are learning the name of each of the States! When they hear our bus Naguara Villageapproaching the children run to greet us with gleeful screams of “Welcome”. Because of their very remote location, the need for food and educational materials is critical.

El Campo Village
Campo VillageThe village of El Campo, located just minutes from Nuevo Paraiso, is home to approximately 320 people. Although there is electricity and potable water, the community is extremely poor and most are unemployed. In the three-room schoolhouse there is one paid teacher and three volunteers. As in most rural villages, more often than not, siblings will share shoes and one school uniform. Campo VillageThey attend school on a rotating basis with the shoes and uniform. In addition, the child who attends school hopes to receive their only meal of the day. We make every effort to make certain the cupboard is never bare. The food is lovingly prepared by a thirty year old mother of three, Lucia. She is deaf, unable to speak and due to the lack of education, Lucia does not read. Again, our objective is to help support El Campo with food and educational materials.

San Juan de Rancho
San Juan de RanchoHidden in the mountains surrounding Tegucigalpa we were thrilled, blessed and grateful to find a large school for desperately underserved children. San Juan de Rancho serves 250 children from Kindergarten through 10th grade. We were stunned to learn that many of these students walk over two hours each morning to attend class. We were equally stunned to learn that not one of the children had the economic backing to own a toothbrush or toothpaste. But, they are exceptionally eager to learn and appreciative of any support we can give them!
