One Child School Sponsorship Program

Give the gift of education. Give the gift of hope.

One Child School Sponsorship Program is a sponsoring program linking individuals in the United States with a child from Honduras. This program covers boys and girls from 1st Grade through 12th grade.

  • The school year in Honduras begins in February and ends in mid-November.
  • Beginning with the 2019 school year, cost to support a child:
    • Grades 1-6 is $160.00 per year
    • Grades 7-12, $270.00 per year.
  • We encourage you to pray about sponsoring a child (or children) for the duration of his or her education – until completion of the 12th grade.
  • We currently have over 300 sponsored children in over 7 different schools.
  • We currently have a waiting list of over 100 children in need of a sponsor.

Support covers the following basic needs:

  • One tailored uniform including a dress shirt underneath and dress shoes
  • One gym uniform (sweatpants, T-shirt, and a pair of sneakers)
  • Basic school supplies: backpack, pencils, pens, erasers, notebooks, project materials, scissors, dictionary, rulers, subject school books, glue etc.
  • Required courses for Grades 7-12: Computer, English, Home Economics

Border Buddies Ministries will send you a brief biography of your child(ren). In addition, BBM will keep you informed of your child’s academic progress. Any letters written to your child(ren) will be translated by BBM. Children enjoy receiving letters and pictures. BBM will translate any letters sent by your child(ren).
