BENEFITING: Miqueas 6-8 Inc
Our orphanage, Hogar Miqueas in Honduras, has just started its third year of operation. As we continue to grow, our needs continue to grow. Through our faithful donors we are able to provide for all our kids basics needs at a high quality level, however we do not have funding for the extras.
Honduras has many challenges to literacy. Culturally it is not very common to read for pleasure and for people who are interested there are no libraries close by. Rural schools have very few textbooks let alone books to encourage reading for pleasure. Many have none at all. Our goal is to build a small library to serve our children at Miqueas and in the future develop a reading program for the kids in our community.
We believe that if we give our kids a place to read and teach them to LOVE reading they will benefit on all levels. Reading is proven to improve concentration, memory, comprehension, speech, writing and creativity.
