It takes $25,000 to complete a school in Honduras. This past December, UK members alongside the Honduras community of San Manuel Cortes broke ground on the middle school Julio Reyes Caballero. Without our relentless effort to fundraise the $25,000 necessary to build the classrooms, this school will not be built. There are nearly 400 children attending this school and because of overcrowding, the middle schoolers have to attend classes in the late afternoons and weekends. Adding this middle school would allow for each grade to have their own classroom and attend school at the same time. As this community continues to grow, it is important to provide space for grades 1-9 so that children are not turned away from attending the school due to limited space. We are working to embody the mission statement of Students Helping Honduras, "a movement to alleviate extreme poverty and gang violence in Honduras through youth empowerment and education." Together, the San Manuel Cortes community and UK members have made a commitment to construction of these classrooms with the belief that the opportunity of an education will empower and develop its next generation of leaders. We both deeply value the power of the opportunity for education and we are in a position to provide this opportunity for others. Fundraising for this school in a single night will lead to perpetual learning and development for the children of this community with whom we have already fostered a strong relationship. We are going to make our mark in history by building this school in a single night. As Nelson Mandela said, "education is the most powerful weapon with which you can change the world" and, together, we look forward to providing this facilitator of development to others with you on March 9th.
