San Pedro Honduras
What is life like in San Pedro? Usually children at an early age have to drop out of school and work in sugar fields to help support the family. No one ever gets ahead because most will not receive education past the 6th grade. Mission Lazarus has set out to change that. Not only are they focused on educating the youth, they are also committed to sharing the Gospel. They have an afterschool program where they learn a trade; they make beautiful leather bags and journals. They are fed a meal a day, receive medical treatment, and are paid a fair wage. This helps the family keep the kids in school. We will never be able to alleviate poverty until we educate the future generation.
