About This TripThis is an 7 Day / 6 Night mission trip to Honduras.
This team will visit AFE.
Join Orphan Outreach and 121 Community Church in serving children and families at the AFE School in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. This will be the 5th year to host a Mother's Day luncheon for the moms of AFE students and other women who work in the dump across the street. For many, it will be the first time to sit at a table and be served a nice meal. This trip is open to any individuals who have a passion to love on kids and women of the dump community and help them know that they are loved by the Lord and His people.
Honduras is one of the poorest countries in Latin America and nearly two thirds of the nation's population lives below the poverty line. UNICEF estimates there are over 170,000 orphans in Honduras. Orphan Outreach ministers in Honduras by partnering with local orphanages, churches, and Christian schools for children in extreme poverty situations. Our primary project is partnering with the AFE (Love, Faith and Hope) school that serves the 300 children working at the dump in Tegucigalpa.
