Small steps – Professional training for single mothers in Honduras

honduras 2017 15

In May 2017 we visited Honduras for the first time. There we got to know the project "Pasos Pequeñitos" (in English "small steps") and decided to take action to keep this great project alive.

The day care center in the Honduran capital Tegucigalpa gives young single mothers the opportunity to finish their education. While their children are cared for in a safe and loving environment, they can catch up on a high school education, get a professional training or attend university.

Honduras is one of the most violent countries in the world. Crime, poverty and insecurity are commonplace for many families. The prices for food and even for water are barely affordable for the majority of the population. Out of necessity, many families send their children to work to feed the family. It is therefore particularly difficult for young single mothers. The mothers of the day-care center "Pasos Pequeñitos" come from very poor, sometimes dangerous neighborhoods. We want to give them the opportunity to obtain an education, so they can take care of themselves and their children in the future. Support the project now:

In the day-care center "Pasos Pequeñitos", 20 children between the ages of one and six are cared for on a daily basis. From 7:30 am to 7 pm the children have the chance to play and learn in safety. They also get three freshly prepared meals during this time. In 2005, a former NPH volunteer (Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos) started this project. Today the financing of the day-care center is unclear and PEN PAPER PEACE wants to secure the continuation of the project. We are just starting, but are highly motivated and counting on your support.
