CLUBS DE NIÑOS Y NIÑAS DE HONDURAS CENTRAL
The Boys and Girls Club of Central Honduras (BCGCH), is the name of the organization that gathers 9 separated clubs in the central area of Honduras. It started with the initiative of True Life Church (Tennessee) and Ms. Jessica Page. We’re attending over 400 kids and teenagers every week in the communities of Talanga, Rio Dulce, La Ermita, Carrizal, Mata de Plátano, Casillas, Zarzalosa and 2 in the capital city of Honduras: Tegucigalpa. Because of Honduras’ economical situation, over 80% of the kids are poor or with low resources and/or opportunities, so the club is a great help for them; they get to play and share with their friends, have a snack or meal and receive good mentorship from the volunteers (members of the local churches).
It’s hard to name a particular success when we have 9 different locations, but in the administrative side of the club our biggest success would be the implementation of the board and the expansion plan for 2019, this will allow us to open our doors more days per week. The success in the club would be the noticeable improvement in the behavior of the kids in school and church, they’re getting better grades and they’re now attending the church on Sunday mornings (the parents can tell the difference).
