Project Hope Trade School
Honduras has one of the lowest educational success rates with only 32 out of 100 students finishing primary school. With the number of secondary school dropouts rising each year, the divide between the wealthy and the poor is widening. Particularly for those who live in rural communities, the thought of furthering their education is only a dream. To travel to the city is financially out of their reach. Adventure In Missions wants to provide an opportunity for them to learn a trade close to home. AIM has partnered with INFOP, the Honduran trade school system, to provide access to education for people in a rural setting where they live. The Project Hope Trade School offers specialized training programs that help these individuals enter the workforce with marketable skills. The skills the students will learn will aid in reducing unemployment, improve life, and help maintain the growing economy of the nation. What’s key about education is that it allows people to lift themselves out of poverty. It’s not charity, but rather a long-term and sustainable path to development. We are seeing that happen one student at a time.
