Orphan Outreach


The Problem

Honduras is the second poorest country in Central America, and one of the poorest in the Western Hemisphere. 62.8% of all Hondurans live in extreme poverty.

An estimated 170,000 children are orphaned in Honduras.

There are nearly 21,000 new cases of children in crisis each year.

Only 43% of Honduran children enrolled in primary school complete the 6th grade. Only 30% will go on to secondary school, and 8% will continue on to college. 

Our Response

Orphan Outreach responds to the needs of orphaned and vulnerable children in Honduras in 3 ways:

Working with government agencies and other organizations, we advocate for best practices and policies that directly affect the quality of care of children.

We invest in community outreach programs that strengthen and preserve families in high-risk, impoverished areas. These programs provide nutritious meals, access to Christian education, quality counseling and mentoring, and urgently needed medical care.

We look for innovative ways to better serve the best interest of orphaned and vulnerable children, including family-based care, foster care, kinship care, and adoption support.
