The Honduras Project was started by Gloria Del Cid. Before Gloria moved to the U.S. at age 11, she had lived her entire life in the neighborhood “La Plaza de Los Dolores” in the heart of Tegucigalpa, Honduras’ capital city. The “La Plaza” neighborhood is made up of low income families, the majority of which are led by single mothers. Gloria remembers how hard and unsafe growing up in “La Plaza” was. Many of the children spend their days alone, with no adult supervision or interaction because their mothers are busy working just to survive. When God called Gloria back to Honduras, He gave her the vision of starting a Learning Center and scholarship program to equip mothers and their children to rise out of poverty through education. 18 yrs later, the scholarship program continues to change the lives of families in “La Plaza”. Some moms have gone on to graduate from University and have successful jobs, and many of the children are also going to university. The overall goal of the Honduras project is to equip both children and parents by providing the tools they need to become healthy–emotionally, physically, spiritually, socially and mentally–so they can become agents of change and “pay forward” all they have learned and received.
