The Milk Project was born out of our clinic seeing so many mal and undernourished children in our area at the clinic in Tegucigalpa.
From what started with handing out powdered milk to mothers, has grown over twenty years to encompass an after school program that focuses on trying to help children and their families physically and spiritually. We started in Tegucigalpa, and now have 75 children attending daily there. And then in 2018 we started a new phase by working with our churches to start Milk Projects there, with 25 children in Sampedrana, and as of 2022, starting another in Las Botijas with another 25 children.
We provide a good meal every day (often the only real meal the children get), spiritual emphasis in class time and songs, as well as homework assistance, play time, some creative spaces (for sewing, making piñatas, and more) as well as just a safe place to share and be loved.
We are able to do this via monthly sponsorships and onetime donations.
There are links to the right if you would like to sponsor monthly one of these children, currently that is $38 per month. With your sponsorship you will get a monthly email from us about the project, get a profile of the child you are sponsoring, and have opportunities to visit their home if you are visiting us onsite and/or sending letters or pictures back and forth.
You can also help us with one time donations. We need those for over time increasing our staff, buying supplies, and new equipment as needed.
Our long term goals here are to start more Milk Projects with every church, expanding our ability to reach the communities we are trying to help on a daily basis and reach new/different families as well. We want to help these children to become the Christian leaders for their communities and families!
