Schools for Children of the World (SCW) and the Awty International School are teaming up again to build another school in San Antonio de Cortes, Honduras!!!
There are 41 families in the community of El Caulote with 12 children (ages 5-7) attending kindergarten and 25 children (ages 7-12) attending primary school in a building that is overcrowded, has inadequate hygiene and lacks natural lighting and ventilation.
The new facility we will provide for them includes a 72 square meter classroom with optimized natural lighting and ventilation, wheelchair accessibility, and modern bathroom facilities. New school furniture and a safe playground are also included.
This project will have an additional amenity not found in public schools in Honduras where they only teach in their native language of Spanish. The teacher of El Caulote has been teaching her students some basic words in English and they are enthusiastic beyond belief! The AWTY students want to encourage their interest in learning two languages by adding a special reading corner with bilingual (English-Spanish) books to their new school.
Won't you join their great cause? Please help the students of the Awty International School make this dream a reality.
Every contribution counts! If we are fortunate enough to exceed our goal, the AWTY kids will build out a better playground for the kids by adding a swing set and monkey bars. We'll also pack our bags with more bilingual books to add to the library! Consider joining our volunteer team to Honduras on June 18-24 2017. Visit www.SchoolsForChildren.org and click on Trips.
