The primary activity of the Central Honduras Education Fund is to provide academic scholarships to students living in rural Central Honduran communities. Our objective is for these students to become capable and productive citizens who contribute to the development and capacity of their own communities.
We currently provide full-academic scholarships to five (5) University Scholars and nine (9) High School Scholars. All students attend school in Honduras.
The Central Honduras Education Fund individually selects scholars that demonstrate not only a desire to continue their education at the high school or university level, but also a commitment to sharing their education with the community around them. The Central Honduras Education Fund family, with the help of the Central Honduras Education Fund Advisory Board, maintains an extraordinarily close relationship with scholars, their families, and the communities in which scholars live and work.
The vision of the Central Honduras Education Fund is to provide hope in the form of access to education. We work with students from Central Honduras and their families, who represent a rural population struggling for economic and social equality. Despite a trend that indicates very limited and often non-existent educational opportunities, The Central Honduras Education Fund looks to break the barriers and build leaders from within these very communities.
The Central Honduras Education Fund hopes to continue to be a catalyst for sustainable development of rural Honduras through education, providing the gateway to an education one student at a time.
